    This is a very popoular and beautiful railfanning location that is just under the 25 mile mark from my home. It is Bear Mountain New York.

    Excellent! When was this pic taken? Are those locos F7's?

    There is a similar spot on the UP line in Redding, California crossing the Sacramento River.

    Hi all,
    It was taken August 8, 1998. There are all three of Conrails E-8 locomotives powering this Office Car Special. Since the break-up of Conrail, the locomotives have been retired.

    That's a great picture and I'd love to go there and camp out and watch the trains, but in my opinion, the greatest railfan place has to be Horseshoe curve. It may not be as pretty as the place in the picture, but the sheer volume of rail traffic... well you know what I mean
