CSX Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA July 20 2005
East Penn Railways recently acquired some "new" engines for its expanding operations. One of the former Southern Pacific B23-7's came up to Lansdale on CSX C746 this morning, and will be heading for its new home in Quakertown PA this afternoon.
The local power, CSX 2641 and CSX 6365, with SP 5114 followed by the C746 power, CSX 8562 and CSX 8125.
If it follows the pattern for former CSX 3153, SP 5114 will become EPRY 5144 and it will wear its Southern Pacific paint for a while.
To say this engine is used is an understatement.
It appears to have had body putty applied in spots and a few of the glass pieces are broken.
The conductor's side is actually worse. It looks like it will take a little work to get this unit in working order.
