Railfan Pictures of the Day - 11/26/2008

SEPTA Main Line Wayne Junction Philadelphia PA November 24 2008
With the end of the railwasher trains the previous week, SEPTA returns the leased West Chester Railroad RS18u 1803. Here it says goodbye to Wayne Junction Electric Shop, its home for most of the past two months.
Approaching Wayne Junction Station, you can see the outline of the former platform canopy, a victim of heavy snows a few years ago. Compare it now to shots from 2005 and you can see the inter-track fence has also been removed, making for a much more photogenic vista.
A good look at 1803 as it departs Wayne Junction for probably the last time. Next year SEPTA should have enough diesels of its own with the arrival of a new gen-set that SEPTA is expecting to receive this winter.
As a reminder of its nights on the railwasher train, a bit of Sandite gel on its rear.
