CSX Trenton Line Woodbourne Yard Langhorne PA February 17 2009


CSX C770 coming off the Fairless Branch is ready to head down to Nabisco with five covered hoppers, but first it has to do a favor for Q418 sitting on the main.
C770 pulls west of CP Fairless, passing ties recently dropped by SEPTA along Track 1 in preparation for upcoming tie and surfacing work.
Then C770 shoves back into the yard under the watchful eyes of Q418's conductor.
C770 couples up to a string of cars on Track 2 in Woodbourne Yard ...
and pulls them out onto the main.
Once C770 was west of CP Fairless, Q418 shoved back against the cars.
Shortly after C770 uncoupled and Q418 did a quick air test, C770 continued on to Nabisco and Q418, with its quartet of SD40-2's, got the signal from SEPTA at Woodbourne and was headed east through CP Wood.
