Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/11/2012

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport PA October 26 2012

One of the daylight regulars on the NS Harrisburg Line is 39G out of Pavonia Yard. Usually departing Camden sometime before noon, a stop to make a pickup at Frankford Junction puts it in Abrams Yard around 16:00, this time led by ES40DC NS 7507.

With an SD60M and a D9-40CW along for the ride, about to pass a string of loaded stone hoppers on the old scale track.
On the other end of the spectrum, daylight runs of CP 158 are rare, here showing up about 20 minutes later with SD40-2 CP 5690 and a couple more EMD units.
Two 5-well and three single-well intermodal cars, a couple high cubes, a covered hopper and a tank car, it hardly seems worth the trip from the great white north.
