Too bad Webshots won't allow direct-linking of images ...we have to copy-and-paste the URL's to view them.
Good photos Tyler. Don't see many of these units around anymore.
All I see is a little x
I would like to see them
The RDCs show up fine for me Chris so don't know why you can't see them.
I also get nothing but little red X.
OK, here are the links.
Here we go.
I love RDC's. There were a pair of them that ran from Suffern, NY to Port Jervis NY on the old Erie line. I must have rode them a hundred times. The train was always pretty empty, so the crew would let me sit in the engineer's seat on the rear car. They even got to know me by name. They would stop at the Port Jervis station to discharge passengers and then go down a ways to refuel. Were the refueled was about 100 yards from a Burger King. People that I took on the ride were so impressed that the conductor would ask "Hey Blake, you getting off here or are you going to Burger King". It was like a private service! One time the conductor has a bad sore throat and asked me to announce the stations on the PA system. Another time, the flag that they used to hold down the dead man's brake slipped out and the train came to a screetching halt. You should have seen the view from the back of the train, sparks flying and everything. Great memeories. I will post some photos if I think of it.
