Railfan Pictures of the Week - 1/24/2010

CSX Bethlehem Branch and SEPTA Main Line Lansdale PA January 2010
What is the difference between a light engine move and a train? At least one car, like these ...
CSX B738 with a loaded CSX hopper sandwiched between CSX GP38-2S 6159 and GP38-2 2746 just south of Hatfield Station on CSX Bethlehem Branch January 19 2010.
The same engines three days later, this time with a box car between them at Cannon Avenue returning to Lansdale Yard, January 22 2010.
Three days after that it is a lone tank car joining CSX 6159 and 2746, along with the usual road power for C746, a pair of CSX SD40-2's (in this case 8801 and 8869), pausing in the rain just north of Eighth Street in Lansdale, January 25 2010.
Later on January 25 2010, SEPTA Extra 51 with a single empty flat car passing the old Reading Company freight station in Lansdale, heading back to Liberty Yard in Philadelphia.
The next day, 51 is back at it again, this time taking another load of rail up to Doylestown, January 26 2010.
