CSX Trenton Line CP Nice Philadelphia PA May 16 2010
An update on the CSX double stack clearance project down at CP Nice. Previous views can be seen here, here , here and here.
Looking east, they have excavated the right of way that the Blue Line fomerly occupied in order to install drains that will carry the water down to the Schuylkill River.
Looking west, the retaining wall looks nearly complete and the drainage work continues while weeds begin to overtake the now single track Trenton Line from Nice to River.
CSX Z501, shuttling tank cars from Port Richmond to Falls Yard, passes through the work area.
