Railfan Pictures of the Day - 3/10/2010

CSX Bethlehem Branch Hatfield PA, SEPTA Doylestown Branch and Main Line Lansdale PA March 4 2010

March 4 finds CSX B738 on the Bethlehem Branch returning from working Hatfield Warehouse.
Later it is over the wye and onto the front track to the Seventh Street switch to wait for a SEPTA southbound MU to clear the Doylestown Branch.
B738 pulled a string of cars off the siding at Lansdale Warehouse on the Doylestown Branch and shoved back the mile or so to the wye and over to the Bethlehem Branch.
With the Lansdale Warehouse siding empty, B738 is now determined to fill it, shoving seven box cars (including two high cubes) through Dale Interlocking on SEPTA Main Line.
Later returning light on the Doylestown Branch passing the site of former American Olean tile plant. Lansdale Borough has proposed putting a park and ride station at this location, to ease the overflow at Colmar and Lansdale, but it has been a long time in the planning stages, and might not ever get past that.
