Railfan Pictures of the Day - 12/31/2009

East Penn Bethlehem Branch Telford, Sellersville and Perkasie PA December 22 2009
Part One is here.
Waiting for B738 just north of Washington Street in Telford was ESPN B23-7 3153, which had just brought down out of storage trash flat cars and sulfur tank cars.
B738's power cuts off its train at Washington Street and pulls onto the middle track to clear ...
and 3153 couples up to take the train north.
After grabbing a quick lunch in Telford, 3153 heads north toward Sellersville, passing some of the many cars now in storage between Telford and Quakertown.
The covered hoppers and trash gondolas on Track 1 stretch all the way from Telford to Perkasie, as storing cars has become the primary business of the East Penn Railway.
