Railfan Pictures of the Week - 3/14/2010

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport and Swedeland PA CSX Woodbourne Yard Langhorne PA, SEPTA Neshaminy Line Neshaminy Falls PA and Main Line Fort Washington PA, CSX Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA

March 5, 6 and 7 2010

March 5 2010 CSX B738 rolls through Bridgeport PA on NS Harrisburg Line heading for Abrams Yard and eventually the Stony Creek Branch.
But the Stony Creek Branch is out of service due to a rail pull-apart that would not be fixed until Monday. NS doesn't want B738 hanging around until then, so NS dispatcher sends them back east, through Swedeland PA destined for CSX rails at CP River, where they will be sent up the CSX Trenton Line to park their train in Woodbourne Yard.
The next morning, the train, now called C946, departs Woodbourne Yard ...
reverses at CP Wood and runs down SEPTA's Neshaminy Line, waiting for a couple SEPTA trains at Neshaminy Falls ...
and down to Jenkintown where they reverse up SEPTA Main Line, passing Fort Washington Station on their way north to Lansdale.
And on the seventh day of March, they rested there.
