Railfan Pictures of the Week - 12/20/2009

East Penn Railway Quakertown Branch Quakertown PA December 12 2009
With RS1 57 sidelined due to compressor problems, ESPN B23-7 3153 filled in to bring Santa Claus down from the Great White North into town, passing some of the many cars in storage.
While Santa held court inside the restored station, children were thrilled to get cab tours of 3153 just outside.
A forlorn 57 sat just south of the station. Adjacent to the former Reading Company station, the Coca-Cola sign is barely visible on the former Lehigh Valley Transit trolley station.
