Railfan Pictures of the Week - 07/26/2009

East Penn Railways Bustleton Branch Philadelphia PA July 22 2009
It has been a couple of years since shortline EPRY (now ESPN) took over operation of the northern half of the Bustleton Branch, and not much has really changed. PRL GP10 2202, after dropping off cars for interchange with Conrail, crosses back over Grant Avenue.
Hard to believe this almost bucolic setting is in the city.
One last thing to do before calling it a day: pick up a couple cars and deliver them to Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation, just on the other side of Blue Grass Road.
Back out light ...
and parked for the night.
