Railfan Pictures of the Week - 01/18/2004

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus Train Morrisville Line May 27 and June 3 2003
The weather was lousy, but hey, it's the circus train. On its way from Hershey PA to Trenton NJ, here it is rolling through Norristown Transportation Center on SEPTA's R6 Norristown Line on May 27 2003, powered by still Conrail blue PRR 2560 and PRR 3337.

Now at CP King heading east on the Morrisville Line.
Having just left Trenton a week later, it is heading west just past CP MA heading for CP Langhorne with NS 9797 and PRR 2576 leading. To the left is the Fairless Branch to Woodbourne Yard and CSX Trenton Line.
