We stayed at our friend's house in Silver Spring, MD and took the DC Metro into downtown Washington, DC. As the CSX tracks merged in with our Metro line, a 3-unit gravel train pulled up along side us. As the Metro is substantially faster than the freight train, we got off at a station along the way, shot the gravel train, and boarded the next Metro just a few minutes later. Although we passed a large passenger yard just before DC union station with a wide variety of very interesting equipment, we took no photos of the various equipment including an Acela set and several Virginia commuter trains we saw parked.
Washington, DC, is the capital of the United States hosting numerous busy passenger and freight lines travelling every which way.

Kicked out of my office by my staff and told to take a vacation, I headed south through Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont to mostly visit friends and take the occasional hour trackside along the way. On the 1st, we drove to Portland, Maine passing, but not stopping at, Mount Washington, a place I intend to eventually return to.
Mount Washington, New Hampshire
Mount Washington is in the White Mountain National Forest and hosts the world's oldest cog railway and the Conway Scenic.
