Conrail. GP-38 #7904 with eastbound freight at Prospect Avenue crossing, Piscataway, NJ. The evening of July 18,1982 photo was taken with a Nikon FM-2 film camera, the shutter speed was 1/125sec, with the aperture of f2.8 & the Vivitar 5200 flash set on 'manual' discharge.  I have 2 Nikon FM-2 cameras, the older one has a flash sync of 1/125 & the newer one has a flash sync of 1/250 sec.  I used the Kodak improved Ektachrome with an ASA of 200. Less grain than the old Kodak 160 ASA. Although the track speed is 50 MPH, this train was traveling approximately 40 MPH.  Looks like the air hose is a bit low!
