Note: Bombardier TRAXX is a modular product platform of electric and Diesel-electric mainline locomotives built by Bombardier Transportation, built in both freight and passenger variants. The first version was a dual voltage AC locomotive built from 2000 for German railways; later versions include DC versions, as well as quadruple voltage machines, able to operate on most European electrification schemes: 1.5/3.0 kV DC and 15/25 kV AC. The family was expanded to include diesel powered versions in 2006. Elements common to all variants include the steel bodyshells, the two bogies with two powered axles each, the three-phase asynchronous induction motors, the cooling exhausts on the roof edges, and the wheel disc brakes.

The TRAXX brand name itself was introduced in 2003. The acronym stands for Transnational Railway Applications with eXtreme fleXibility. Locomotives were primarily made for the railways of Germany, with orders coming from other European countries including France, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Spain and Hungary.

Electric Unit CP 4010 | Alfa Pendular Train Nr. 132(Braga-»Lx-SA) | Place: Between Entroncamento and Lamarosa - Portugal | Day: 09-08-12

The last of the Alfa Pendular EMUs series, number 4010, passes through at about 160km/h (if not faster!). I liked how this shot turned out.

COMSA's 335-002 is seen arriving at Entroncamento with a paper pulp freighter (I think its empty though) from Spain.
I really liked the result of this photo. :) I was also able to catch the heat from the dinamic braking.

Just imagine:
You (a railfan) sit on the stairs of a small footbridge across a railline, Happy about a tripple of 610s and a duo of 648s which shot along the rails minutes before and then you hear some distant woomwoomwoomwoomwoom At least most railfans in germany will jump up and run to the best possible photospot in reach now, IT's coming! Ludmilla! The last diesel saurus on german tracks! If it comes closer everything starts to vibrate, just as the WOOMWOOMWOOM gets louder and louder. Seconds after this shot I tried to stand right aboth it, and the engineer accelerated :D Single 232 and a whole load of srapped metal, that's already boah! =)
But like at many other places, the diesel paradise Pegnitztal will vanish, together with it's WOOMing 232s, 233s and it's sleek swinging 610s. Then we got another line with electric whires, Talent 2 and 185s. Screw you, diesel price.

The famous Nohab locomotive in Hungary, Györ, with nostlagic train. 2011-07-29 dusk.

This is the first Nohab locomotive of MÁV (Hungarian State Railways) from the 20 piece.

The red star on the nose of this locomotive non-totalitarian symbol, but in this paint transported many trains this locomotive.

The locomotive waits to depart next to the storage rails, in incorrect place, because this railway track go directly to Győr-Gyárváros-Győrszabadhegy direction.

An ICE T speeds towards Cologne on the Cologne-Duisburg line, having just passed Leverkusen-Rheindorf. The T denotes that this train is equipped with a tilting mechanism that allows it to reach higher speeds on lines with many curves.

But damn, why did they leave the coupling cover open?? Totally wrecks the sight I think...

As usual, I tried to get away from standard sunrise pics by getting something else in the shot, yet again, it's the Cologne-Duisburg line crossing through Leverkusen.

What I liked about this one is that the sun is partially concealed behind the smoke from a chimney. It is actually a waste-to-energy plant, in case you're wondering. I think the partially concealed sun makes the gleaming railheads and of course the train much more prominent, and I also liked the colour and composition. Makes one feel good to be where civilisation is, where the trains go by, high voltage in the sky :D

Typical scene, a five car double decker is pushed towards Leverkusen through the snowy fields, with one small oddity: Instead of a class 146 (built starting 1997) the train is pushed by a class 111 (built between 1974 and 84). While it's a standard configuration on many lines with double deckers, the two lines that come by here always use the 146. I pass this spot twice every day in such a train, going to and coming from university, about 50 kilometers behind my back in Duisburg.

My mother, asking the driver of 431 127 for a cab ride! :B

Okay, in reality, a friend of the family left her cellphone at our apartment. And with her father being a former railroader, numerous little shipments have often been sent by handing them to crews who would then hand them over to someone at a designated station. In this case, the driver had absolutely no problem with this little "shipment" from Budapest to Miskolc, and when he even received a little chocolatey gift for his help, his day was made.

Locomotive is of course a classic V43, aka "Szili".

Three trains converge at East Conway. Left to right, roadrailer 28A, 18N, and 18A. 18A is in the process of yarding its train.

Notice how dark and dull the shot is...the most interesting power and moves aways happen in the worst of weather.

Typically rating two SD40-2s for power, a northbound AEP Cardinal train crosses the Bellaire-Benwood bridge with two GP40-3s and a highhood GP35.

This bridge will make a appearance in the upcoming movie "Unstoppable."

Take note of the field in between the two bridges and watch the trailer [link]

A cold January day is coming to close as I sit and wait for one last train before the sun falls below the horizon. The signals here where red just a few moments ago, a train is coming.

The train, Q137, calls out Rt13, then Boyd, Greenwich, then the signal before Boughtonville, Edwards, as it makes its way west at 50MPH.

Unfortunately, the sun is faster than the priority intermodal and sets a few moments before the train makes it to where Im waiting.

Another day has closed, a good day. Another will come tomorrow as I stayed the night. It is these two days and the four days that I spent in Chicago in November that was most surprising weather wise. Two back to back sunny days in January when predicted to be cloudy and four back to back sunny days in November. It somehow makes up for the entire month of September being completely junk.
