    Those are all looking great guys! I love seeing those locos and the different locations. Sometimes I'll start "walking around" and see cool looking buildings!

    My earlier post of ARR #3010 (forgot to post the number) leaving the Whittier tunnel - you can Google "walk" (or drive) through that tunnel since it is shared with the highway.

    CSX #1222 switching the CSX South Savannah yard in Savannah, Georgia. The streets at ground level are owned by CSXT and the United States Army.

    I'm currently building this yard and all tracks with the area of Savannah.

    A couple of Providence and Worcester engines waiting to enter their Worcester, MA yard.

    Great view of the trains here. Rotate around and you'll see other neat shots. There are awesome buildings here too including the old Worcester railroad station built by the former Boston and Albany.

    EDIT: Fixed with Dave's help. Thanks Dave!

    This is a great idea

    Two workhorses (SD40-2s UP 3150 & 3607) in Cheyenne, WY, with a classic beauty from the '50s behind them...

    John, I don't know about anyone else, but your link doesn't work for me.

    Make sure you select the "Short Link" thusly:

    Thanks

    Sorry John; your link is not working for me. It just takes me to Google Maps, showing North America. Could you check again and be sure you copy the link from the "link" button you find in the same menu as where you find "Get Directions"?

    Edit: Just noticed Dave post the same thing but apparently it took me forever to create my post.

    Anyway,
    Here you find "Union PaGOfic" 362 and HLCX 3832.
    https://maps.google.com/maps?ll=37.5...1,,0,8.72&z=19
    Check the link to find out I wrote "Union PaGOfic" correct .

    Edit2: ... and now I noticed some already posted the same link as I just did . Not my sharpest post lol.

    MBTA Commuter train heading to South Station or from Back Bay on line along I-90 in Boston.

    NMBS engines 2331 and 2623. Sadly, these types of engines have now been taken out of service
