Railfan Pictures of the Week - 08/09/2009

ESPN Quakertown Branch Quakertown PA July 23 2009
An East Penn Railways high rail truck sits on the former Reading Company Bethlehem Branch southbound main at Quakertown Station while EPRY B23-7 3153 rests on the northbound main. The building in the background is the former Lehigh Valley Transit Quakertown car barn.
The famous triple track (last picture here) has been replaced with a more pedestrian crossover.
Everything that moves in one shot, just not moving right now as evening approaches.
Unfortunately RS-1 57, which had been used previously on the branch, is out of service again.
The engine had an encounter with a tank car that did not end well. Anybody know where you can pick up spare parts for an ALCo RS-1?
