I went to the second stop, got a video of the car coming into the sation and took a ride on the streetcar to the other end of the line, were I added to the video. I rode back to Union Station, in time for the 12:31, and decided to return, should I have time and daylight. So off the New Carrollton.
Again, Amtrak was using Sunday Schedule, so I arrived and 140 was next scheduled. Also, it was raining so I did not go to the end of the platformed where I would have a better video. I did get a video:
Because it was cold and rainy and being off my schedule, I only got one video.
This should be my last use of New Carrollton as a location to photograph trains. The situation is more of platform design. First it is a high platform. When the train reaches the platform, I can no longer see the wheel sets. My standard would have all the equipment, top to bottom. With a high platform I would go to the end of the platform. The second problem is that it is a center platform. All arriving trains use the same platform, regardless of direction. If it were two platforms, I could use the arriving end of one platform. The entire train could be seen on the other track, as well.
