Railfan Pictures of the Week - 01/13/2008

SEPTA Main Line North Wales and Lansdale PA January 10 2008


The wire train has commenced work on the SEPTA Main Line, a project that will replace the overhead wires from Glenside to Lansdale and run into next year. For the first week, RL1A 61 has been doing the honors, stopping just short of Dale before heading south.
They are currently setting up the pulleys through which they will string the new wires, and making plenty of friends in North Wales as they temporarily block the crossing.
As with the track work previously, all of the affected crossings are taken out of service and must be flagged by the conductor.
After they finished, they pulled south enough to clear the crossing circuit ...
and will follow the southbound into town.
