UP Jeff City Sub, DeSoto Sub, Chester Sub, Pana Sub, Springfield Sub, Kirkwood Industrial Lead, Broadway Industrial Lead, Madison Industrial Lead, Lesperance Industrial Lead, and the line into Alton, whatever that is called.

Many TRRA lines

Alton & Southern Railway

Manufacturers Railway

BNSF Hannibal Sub, River Sub, and Cuba Sub

CN St. Louis District

CSX former B&O and former Conrail

NS to Decatur, Alton, Madison, Louisville, Kansas City

Central Midland Railway

Kansas City Southern

Missouri and Valley Park

I think I got them all. There are a lot of lines here, and really, we have had only a small number of abandonments compared to what still operates into and around the area.

In my neighborhood, there's the W&LE.

In my city (Pittsburgh), we have Amtrak, AVR, CSX, and NS.

In the Pittsburgh region there's the CN (B&LE), PAM, P&OC, SWP, TCKR, URR, and several industrial operations.

No shortage of variety in Western PA!

Before I moved here, I had the Long Island RR Bay Ridge line a block away, and the J/Z, L, and A/C subway lines within a few blocks.

Now I have SEPTA subway and trolleys a few blocks south and 30th Street Station (Amtrak, CSX, SEPTA, NJ Transit) a few blocks east. When my dorm room's windows are opened up I have a good view of the High Line (CSX). I can see SEPTA's regional rail tracks from just south of Zoo interlocking to the tunnel portal downtown. I can also see from here the NEC (Amtrak, NJT) approaches to the lower level. It's great for train watching but sucks for photography, since all but the High Line and a short stretch of one track of SEPTA are obstructed.



If I can keep my grades up and stay in the Honors College, next year I'll hopefully get to stay in the honors dorms that are just across the street from the tracks...

The only line that runs through my town is New Jersey Transit. The Morristown & Erie has trackage rights and NS runs a local out to Washington on it.
Relatively close to me I have the Morristown & Erie, CSX River Line, NYS&W, and the Shared Assets Lehigh Line.

The Arkansas & Missouri on one side of the county and KCS on the other. The best thing is that the A&M is 2 blocks from my house and I get to hear Alco’s everyday.

If we're talking about who owns the track, then it would be Network Rail. If we're talking about the companies that use the track, then it's Virgin Trains, First Transpennine Express, Northern Rail, Arriva Trains Wales, Central Trains, EWS, Freightliner. I think that covers them all.

Cool In the north country?

This is overwhelming I know but, there is CN. Oh, did I mention CN?

That may explain why I only have a few pix on RP
There is the prospect of the Rocky Mountaneer and intermodal traffic starting next summer.

Difficult to keep track as the franchises keep changing - as Callufrax said:
"If we're talking about who owns the track, then it would be Network Rail."

but the Passenger Train Operating Companies (TOCs) you're likely to spot in Bedfordshire include:
On the East Coast Mainline:
  • 1st Capital Connect (previously WAGN (West Anglia Great Northern), previously Network South East);
    Great North Eastern Railway(GNER);
    'One' Railway (previously Anglia Railways);
    Hull Trains;
On the Midland Route:
  • Midland Mainline;
    1st Capital Connect (previoulsy Thameslink)
On the West Coast Mainline:
  • Virgin West Coast;
    Silverlink Trains
On the Marston Vale line:
  • Silverlink Trains
Freight in the area is moved by:
  • EWS freight (English Welsh & Scottish Railway - formerly owned by Wisconsin Central - hence similar livery);
    GBRailfreight;
    Freightliner;
    DRS (Direct Rail Services - usually MoW - but as it's owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority is also the prime mover for nuclear materials in the UK )
Have I missed any?

Thanks Janet

'Fastline' is a new one to me

Also does Eddie Stobart also come through on the WCML at all?

Default Eddie Stobart

Uncle Eddie's trains are operated by DRS. I think his trains terminate at Daventry Freight Terminal, between Rugby and Northampton, so don't quite make it to Bedfordshire.

North of the Border in Carluke (on the WCML) we have Virgin West Coast, Virgin Cross Country, First Scotrail, Strathclyde PTE/Scotrail and GNER on passenger services, plus EWS and West Coast Railways (+ the occasional FM Rail) on Charter trains.

For freight and mail trains, we get them all - EWS, DRS, FLHH, FL Intermodal, GB Railfreight and one or two intrusions by FM Rail. Amec Rail are reportedly about to start moving timber. Jarvis Fastline have been known north of the border as well.

I feel very lucky to live where I do!
Rochester, NY, lots of interesting activity around.

CSX Rochester Sub (former Conrail Chicago Line, original New York Central mainline) runs right through the middle of town, so all the modern power is represented there.

the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville runs right into the city, with its fleet of beautifully maintained Alco Centuries.

The Rochester & Southern Railroad is also in town, a Genesee & Wyoming line with interesting first and second generation EMD's, including a few high-hood GP9's..

a few miles away is the Finger Lakes Railway, running old GP's and U-boats in New York Central lightning stripes!

Norfolk Southern is close by as well..

then all the Alcos of Buffalo arent too far away either.

Later this year we will have New York Central E-units hauling New York Central coaches nearby!

its all good!

Scot

Been running a few months now, firstly between Doncaster and Grain and now from Birch Coppice as well.
Through here southbound about tea time so in darkness at present and returns north at night - southbound run should be "photable" later on in the year.
