Railfan Pictures of the Week - 2/07/2010

SEPTA Lansdale Station and Main Line Lansdale PA February 2010

Two snows storms blew through the Delaware Valley this week, and they couldn't have been more different in their results.

Wednesday February 3 2010 saw a light dusting that clung to the trees and everything but the roads, as CSX B738 works Crystal Soap in Lansdale in the morning.

By afternoon, most of it had disappeared as B738 rolls past Crystal after working farther north on the CSX Bethlehem Branch.
Friday afternoon the leaden clouds of the second storm rolled in as the SD40-2's of C746 rest in the yard while the GP38-2's of B738 (the headlight in the distance) return from working Hatfield Warehouse.
Twenty four hours and at least 12 inches of snow later, the yard has a clean white blanket. With temperatures barely getting above freezing and another storm forecast for Tuesday (early estimates are for another foot), it could be a while before the ballast is visible again.
