SEPTA Doylestown Branch Lansdale PA June 16 2011

The latest news on the transfer of Lansdale Cluster operations from CSX to New Hope and Ivyland Railroad is that the July 1 2011 date is off the table, possibly now a fall move.

So CSX will keep on doing what they have been doing for the past 12 years, starting with waking up the power each morning.

On this day, they made a daylight run to Lansdale Warehouse on the Doylestown Branch, passing a SEPTA track gang at the Ninth Street grade crossing (another long delayed project).
All they had to do was pull a few cars out of the warehouse ...
run down to Dale and then back into the yard, timing it almost perfectly with Train 554.
