Railfan Pictures of the Day - 6/11/2010

New Jersey Transit River LINE Shop Camden NJ June 5 2010
Part One of Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Line Historical Society tour of NJT River LINE shop is here, Part Two is here.
After the tour at the shops, the group drove over to Haines Yard to see some of the maintenance of way cars used by the River LINE. The cars' paint schemes (courtesy of the River LINE shops) are reminiscent of some of the railroads that made up Conrail. SNJX 2005 wears the logo and lettering of the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines, the joint venture that operated the trains in South Jersey between 1932 and 1976.
SNJX 2006 wears the Lackawanna name. The car class H34Y comes from the original Pennsylvania class H34, which were originally covered hoppers that later in life had their roofs removed for their new career as ballast hoppers, operating into the Conrail era.
SNJX 2004 mimics a Reading Class LOg hopper in a two bay open hopper paint scheme.
SNJX 1006 is one confused little flat car. It wears a New York Central herald on its side but a Pennsylvania-type class of H34Z, which would make it a hopper. The load consists of concrete and steel sections used for grade crossing replacement.
