Caught up with this train today while working. Intresting power and consist for these parts.
Cool stuff... :thumb:
Yeah, very interesting indeed. You're lucky someone didn't stop you and ask why you were taking pictures of this equipment.
Nice shots though...:thumb:
Very nice, we saw this a few months back. I see these trains quit often but don’t always have the camera with me.
i was honestly hoping you were going to refer to a marx army train
military stuff by rail
LOaded mil trains have been a passion for me since the late 90's. I lived in Pensacola, FL (pre-ivan) during the build up to OIF and saw many trains roll through.
Modeling this is fun, Rocco mini-tanks are 1/87 scale. They are made as toys but lend themselves to fun scratch bashing and accurizing. I will try to dig out the pics of work Ihave done with them.
Where was the train heading ? Westbound or eastbound?
I see the following units (Vehicle belongin to) on it:
-Logistic (Service Batallion and MSE)
-Infantry (with Recce)
The only difference between that picture and one taken, say, in 1980, is the Mercedes Jeeps and the LAV / Coyote. Sad indeed
I train that I caught was on the west side of Cleveland, heading west into the Berea yards.
Mil-trains I have caught
I wanted to share a couple of the pictures of mil trains that I caught going through Pensacola, FL in '02 & '03.
The first is an Army tank wrecker (M-88) , this car was the lead car on a nearly soild train of M2/3s. The power was two FURX engines (green white).
The second is a Fla Natinal guard unit going to the training center in Alabama (I traced the power on CSX's website (when it was still public access).
Very Cool Pictures.
