Railfan Pictures of the Week - 12/26/2010

CSX Greenwich Yard and Hyundai-Rotem Plant Philadelphia PA December 26 2010
CSX C964 was called in the early morning hours of Boxing Day to bring a belated present to SEPTA: the first three production Silverliner V's. C946 journeyed from Woodbourne Yard down to Greenwich Yard in South Philadelphia to pick up the cars and take them to Wayne Electric.
Over at the Hyundai-Rotem plant, CSX and plant personnel were making final adjustments to move Silverliner V single unit 703 and married pair 803 and 804.
Train Y450 with CSX GP15-1 1519 would do the honors with the plan to shove the cars with three gondola spacers out to C964.
Plans change, and an hour later C964 was brought up to the plant to couple up there.
Forgot to mention the impending blizzard, which made the work just a little more interesting.
By 1:45 apparent brake problems and the deteriorating weather conditions cause the whole project to be postponed. With luck, the new cars will be in SEPTA's hands before the new year.
