Railfan Pictures of the Day - 09/20/2007

SEPTA/NS/CSX Stony Creek Branch Norristown PA September 13 2007
Part One is here.
Since most of the major railroads no longer have wreck trains, the work is contracted out. In this area, Terra gets the call, complete with police escorts as they roll down Markley Street.
A little derailment like this requires just three trucks, loaded with a small dozer,
a lone Sidewinder,
and accessories.
