Conrail Shared Assets Operations in South Jersey

WPCA-11 was using UP 4801 and NS 8343 in March and April for 3 weeks. Here is a series of shots on the northbound run on Saturday April 10 2004

First is at Logan Township, coming out of Bridgeport NJ

Second is at Gibbstown NJ (same ballast, better light on the nose).

After dropping off the boxcars at the head end, the third shot is at Crown Point Road in Thorofare NJ approaching the dragging equipment detector.
Fourth is at Barber Ave closing in on CP-Woodbury.
On April 17 2004, SD45-2 8973 ventured out of Pavonia Yard and led WPCA-11 southbound through CP-Woodbury. Note the steel coil cars, not often seen on WPCA-11.
