    Worse, looks like they have been taken out of service. Have not seen one past my window in ages.
    I loved those things, They had a special 'noise' in them.

    While waiting for the school bus on Blakemore Bridge. Its a bit over exposed. I will have lots of time to get a better one. What type of locomotive is it?

    That's an ACS-64, nicknamed Sprinter and built by Siemens.

    @digimar52 Thanks! They fly past my window at about 80mph on the center track, (concrete ties).
