Railfan Pictures of the Week - 10/16/2011

SEPTA Norristown Branch Conshohocken PA April 1993
The wire train has been working the Norristown Branch the past several months, so how about a flashback to 1993 when SEPTA was doing some tie work along the line. Here a revenue run passes RL1 61 hauling a ballast train at CP Creek just north of Conshohocken Station.
The ballast cars were converted coal and covered hoppers.
The RL1's were relatively new and had not yet received lettering on the sides.
Here they were cruising south along Washington Street in Conshohocken.
