CSX Trenton Line Langhorne, Neshaminy Falls and Philadelphia PA August 2006

Foreign power has given leased power a run for its money on trains on the Trenton Line this month.

The first week of August saw NS SD70M-2 2760 bouncing back and forth on the Philadelphia to Oak Island turn, here on Q300 at CP Wood early on the morning of the 4th.

Ten days later, Q301 with CSX 9013 leading the train through Neshaminy Falls ....
with UP C44AC 6318 wearing the Southern Pacific paint it has had since June 1995 and a Union Pacific patch that was applied in July 2004.
The day before, a pair of CN units came down on Q417 and spent a few days in South Jersey before returning on Q418 on the 16th. After working Woodbourne Yard, CN SD75i (CN class GF-643c) 5779 led the train eastbound at CP Wood ...
with CN Dash 9-44CWL (CN class EF-644e) 2664 trailing.
Later that day Q439 came down with a pair of new ES44DC's: CSX 5345 on the point ...
and behind it, BNSF 7794 in "Power Bar" scheme, here being passed by a pair of CSX B36-7's (CSX 5831 and 5834) on K206 on the siding at CP Berry.
