    I like the loco with a cab on each end! I also had to look at the map to see where Penzance was located.

    I found one of those teeny-tiny switchers that they use over there. I think the running number is 08 0 but, that might just be the wheel arrangement

    Anyway,

    CC203 21 (CC203 98 09) is seen here about to leaving Weleri station with Semarang Poncol-bound "Kaligung" express train. Although this train is classified as a local train, but it has 2 executive-class coaches and a dining car (which is actually one of those converted from business-class coaches made surplus by the plan for reducing passenger classes into just executive and economy), and it even uses a dedicated electric generator car for powering whole coaches in the train.

    [ADDITION]

    https://goo.gl/maps/oxmRbnwcQrwJ79jXA

    Ngrombo-bound local train "Kedungsepur" is seen here just leaving the Alastua station, located east of Semarang city. This train is the last local train in Indonesia that still uses Japanese-built MCW302 series DMU (based on KiHa 58 series DMU of JNR), with the DMU set used by this train is actually planned to be used on Kualanamu Airport Train in Medan (North Sumatra), only to be cancelled after Indonesian Railways changed the plan for using ex-Prambanan Express DMU (rebuilt from BN-Holec EMU of Jakarta Commuter Division that were infamous for its "prone to trouble") and newly-built DMU constructed by Woojin Heavy Industries (South Korea).

    CC204 19 (CC204 10 02) of Kertapati locomotive depot (with an empty fuel train from Lubuklinggau station) is seen here waiting for clear to enter Kertapati station, before eventually pushes back into the Kertapati Lama Fuel Terminal of PT. Pertamina (state-owned oil company) located just beside the home signal of the station.

    This July 2019 shot was taken by Streetview's car within the area of Butuh station (west of Kutoarjo), which features CC201 77R (CC201 89 05) of Madiun locomotive depot waiting at this station with a passenger train (presumably the "Joglosemarkerto", judging from the presence of newly-built air conditioned 3rd class coaches ordered by Ministry of Transportation from 2010 to 2014). Because this shot was taken during the peak of double track construction project between Kroya and Kutoarjo back in 2019, there is a possibility that another train was supposed to pass the station but temporarily reduced its speed somewhere due to construction works.

    https://goo.gl/maps/3vW4MCHi1unW5YGY7

    This December 2020 shot was taken near Patukan station in Yogyakarta, where this SSP-203 ballast profiler machine (manufactured by Plasser & Theurer) is seen here stands near the crossover switch (probably waiting for clear to perform shunt movement).

    Behind the camera and to the right is the construction of the new Lechmere carbarn. The Green line was extended to Somerville and Medford over shared ROW with the heavy rail. The line has since opened, and if you go out to satellite view, you can see the completed and active transit system. The Street View images haven't been updated yet.

    I got the idea to check out this area because of a wonderful Route made by escd84 that models this whole area. It's a massive and highly detailed route. There is a review video from an equally great YouTube channel here:

    There is an expanded version of the route shown in the video on the DLS under the name:

    Cool stuff.

    Mt. Vernon IL has some interesting locomotives. I've never seen those switchers either. I think they're privately owned for the metal company there.

    Metro North F40PH #4909 in Dover, NJ. Can someone tell me a little more about this electrified line or is it just the NEC and I'm being dumb. But still, there are two crossings nearby which turns me away from the NEC theory. It's 3 am now and I'm too lazy to research this. There is also an add for Miniature Wonderland in Berlin, Germany to the right on the adjacent platform.

    Move the time forward from the above link and the progression that plays out is super saddening.

    I just tried to submit this reply with a BUNCH more cool stuff in it but something went wrong and I lost half of everything I wrote so now I'm going through my search history angrily.

    Lotta interesting stuff here; two MTN coaches on flatcars, Rock Island F7 and another grey F7, a 50-tonner under the bridge, a bunch of cabooses and passenger cars with rust and graffiti, a gutted U36B in Providence & Worchester paint, an NS Dash 9, a CN GP60 Triclops and a GP9 of some sort

    The Dover, NJ station is the end of electrification for NJ Transit's Morristown Line, which connects Hoboken, NJ and New York Penn Station with Hackettstown, NJ. The line is also shared with NJ Transit's Montclair-Boonton Line, except between the now defunct station of Roseville Avenue/North Newark (which is just north of Newark Broad Street Station) and the existing Denville station, where the unelectrified Montclair-Boonton Line takes a different route. The ad at the station is not for Miniatur Wunderland, the model railroad which is actually in Hamburg, Germany, but Northlandz, a smaller model railroad in Flemington, New Jersey.
