    Yeah, very interesting indeed. You're lucky someone didn't stop you and ask why you were taking pictures of this equipment. :rolleyes:

    Nice shots though...:thumb:

    [​IMG]Very nice, we saw this a few months back. I see these trains quit often but don’t always have the camera with me.

    military stuff by rail

    :thumb: TW,
    Great pics,
    LOaded mil trains have been a passion for me since the late 90's. I lived in Pensacola, FL (pre-ivan) during the build up to OIF and saw many trains roll through.

    Modeling this is fun, Rocco mini-tanks are 1/87 scale. They are made as toys but lend themselves to fun scratch bashing and accurizing. I will try to dig out the pics of work Ihave done with them.

    Where was the train heading ? Westbound or eastbound?

    I see the following units (Vehicle belongin to) on it:

    -Field Engineer
    -Logistic (Service Batallion and MSE)
    -Communication
    -Infantry (with Recce)
    -Artillery

    The only difference between that picture and one taken, say, in 1980, is the Mercedes Jeeps and the LAV / Coyote. Sad indeed

    Mil-trains I have caught

    I wanted to share a couple of the pictures of mil trains that I caught going through Pensacola, FL in '02 & '03.

    The first is an Army tank wrecker (M-88) , this car was the lead car on a nearly soild train of M2/3s. The power was two FURX engines (green white).

    The second is a Fla Natinal guard unit going to the training center in Alabama (I traced the power on CSX's website (when it was still public access).

    Enjoy,
    Craig
