Railfan Pictures of the Day - 03/27/2008

SEPTA Doylestown Branch Lansdale PA March 26 2008
As an addendum to Daylight shots of nighttime locals out of Lansdale PA, B738 worked the Doylestown Branch during the day on March 26 2008, a run that is normally served by nocturnal B745. But due to crew scheduling, car delivery or other problems, B738 gets to run the branch once or twice a year. Adam Christman chased it the couple miles out and back.
Getting ready to leave, they will shove south of the station to Dale Interlocking ....
and run east on the Doylestown Branch. The front track, which was used in the past for this move and others, has been occupied by CSX track equipment for over a year.
With only few box cars, the entire train fits on the siding at Lansdale Warehouse.
After dropping off the cars, it is back to Lansdale as it passes the station headed to the yard.
