Railfan Pictures of the Week - 08/05/2012

PNRR Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA July 30 2012

For a short time at the end of July and beginning of August, the largest collection of former Conrail C39-8's got even larger (see July 8 2012 RPOTW).

Along with the two PNRR units, the third and final MMA unit arrived from Ivyland to join its sisters 8202 and 8208 before their trip to the great white north.
It is hard to tell which of the three was in the best shape, at least cosmetically, as MMA 8207 was missing a couple grills from its dynamic brake hump ...
and the number boards need a little help.
Unlike when you buy a car, it doesn't come with a full tank, either.
Alas, the gathering would not last as a few days later CSX C746 took them to Woodbourne and they were promptly picked up by Q418 to head to their new owner.
