At 2:24 PM in Tarrytown the Inspection Train equipment move came by pulling by GP35 #103 as the cars are headed over to the other side of the river for this upcoming Friday's Run on the WOH Inspection train.

Croton-harmon to MO Jct, to New Rochelle, then via Amtrak to NJ, where NJT will bring it in MMC.

It came through Secaucus last night some time around 11:30pm or so on track B with an AEM-7 pulling.

Usually leaves between 8A -830.

If it goes like it has in the past:

Goes out with three engines to Woodbine, one cuts off and goes to the east end and then goes back to Pascack Jct, single engine cuts off and then it goes up the tier to Pt Jervis. Run around and then back to Hoboken.

Is anyone going to be riding on the inspection train today like we had in previous years? If so, drop me a note... I'd love to hear anything that they talked about.

I saw the WOH Inspection train late this morning in Suffern as it came by at 11:55 AM and it was my very first time seeing the Inspection train on the other side of the river. :-D :-D :-D
