Railfan Pictures of the Week - 10/28/2012

NS Harrisburg Line Valley Forge PA October 19 2012

One of the "as-needed" trains on the Harrisburg Line is the stone turn to and from Abrams Yard. H48 usually brings down loads to leave on the scale track at Bridgeport and takes the empties back west. Here NS 9194 is leading, having just cleared the limits of the yard with CP Forge now in sight.

Trailing unit was NS 8464, former LMS C40-8W 724.
The cars on the run vary, this time a string of former Conrail H1K hoppers.
