New England rail relics

Recommended Posts

considering how many heads from NE are on this mother (who all have something to argue about on the Boston thread..) i figure this will keep the fellow railfan lunatics happy. amen.

i've never seen B&M passenger cars before, they remind me of Amtrak's older cars. these 2 cars have seen better days, but still aren't that decayed.

great find. Those first two are RDCs (Rail Diesel Cars), self propelled passenger cars for use on low traffic routes. Looks like you could have hours of fun exploring that place. if you find anything else be sure to post it...

i found myself wondering "where do they build trains anyway?" i know where all the car plants are, but what about trains? do they just kinda pull out of the train factory and go right to work?

ese... well, writers definitely know the spot and it's not deserted. (actually, there's a really good reason why those cars are there)... they also grind down rail in that area and there is nuff activity. although, that entire building is abandoned as far as i can tell. hopefully i didn't heat it up, but it's prob not cool to paint there anyhow.

 

bojangles- it's pretty easy to find out where trains are made (that building in the pic is not used for storing trains).. you can look at the right place in a subway car or a freight car and see a plaque or inscription telling who made it and where. Companies like Kinki and, of course, Bombardier make trains in places like Japan, Vermont and Canada.
