Railfan Pictures of the Week - 12/11/2011

New Hope and Ivyland Railroad New Hope Station New Hope PA December 10 2011
Twas two weeks before Christmas, and NHRR C30-7 7087 is about to take the North Pole Express out for an early morning trip to Lahaska and back. Starting December 15 and running until December 23, the NPE will be running several times daily. After taking Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off, they will start up again on December 26 and run until New Years Eve. For tickets and times, check out the website
In the bullpen, ready to step in, if needed, are GP30 2198 and C39-8 8202.
Not going anywhere for a while is former Nacionales de Mexico N. de M. 4-8-4 3028.
Just what former NS and CR C39-8 8208 needs ... a tender. For some reason, it just looks right.
Just before departure, a last minute fill up with sand, then it is off to the North Pole.
