Railfan Pictures of the Day - 03/28/2006

Conrail Shared Assets Operations Port Richmond Yard Philadelphia PA January 21 2006
No, do not attempt to adjust your screen, because yes, they ARE upside down. Don't know what happened to them, as they are only 14 years old, but must have been something to require this treatment. These former Conrail H1K hoppers were either heading for a shop for some major mending, or destined for the big hump yard in the sky. If it is the latter rather than the former, anyone keeping score can scratch the following cars off their rosters .....
Conrail Class H1K 493151 on TTX flatcar OTTX 93328
Conrail Class H1K 493104 on TTX flatcar OTTX 93609
Conrail Class H1K 493060 on TTX flatcar OTTX 92762
Conrail Class H1K 493002 on TTX flatcar HTTX 92913
Conrail Class H1K 493046 on TTX flatcar OTTX 90080

Sharing their fate is Wimpey Minerals USA hopper WIMX 97027 on TTX flatcar OTTX 97721
