|Getting ready to turn at Queens Plaza|
Below is an embedded slideshow of pictures. (Click here if the embed is misbehaving mad you can't see it.) Included are a few shots from my adventure down in the morning on the Metro North football train to the Meadowlands (you can ride to Penn Station for the same price and with a ticket to Grand Central) which I did merely because I wanted to ride New Jersey Transit equipment, and see what lies beyond CP 216 (New Rochelle for the uninitiated) in Amtrak territory. Also included are some shots from around Grand Central Terminal on my way home with the displays dealing with that morning's catastrophe. Let me tell you - I never thought I'd see the day when the Hudson Line departure board in the main concourse was blank. I left them in the set because it's all part of the day's happenings. The news of it broke about 10 minutes before I left my house that morning.
As I mentioned above, the nostalgia train will be running the next three Sundays: December 8, 15, and 22nd between 10am and 5pm. Check here for a list of departure times. If you're in the tri-state area I strongly suggest checking it out!
