Railfan Pictures of the Week - 09/23/2012

SEPTA/CSX Stony Creek Branch East Norriton PA

NS Abrams Yard Harrisburg Line Upper Merion PA

Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA

September 17 2012


Another dawn, another CSX work train on the Stony Creek Branch, this time loaded with equipment for the rail gang and hauled by a trio of EMD four axle power, the only power trusted to run on the decrepit line (decrepit now, but evidently not for long).

Lunch time and the local power for Abrams is shuttling around the yard ...
about to pull cars out of Heavy Yard and head out as H3A.
Evening, and in the nearly golden light, the CSX engines have made it up to Lansdale and parked for a few hours until a new crew is sent up to bring them and any outbounds from the Pennsylvania Northeastern back down to Woodbourne via SEPTA, of course.
CSX power in the yard, feels like the good old days (which were just a year ago).
