Railfan Pictures of the Week - 01/13/2013

SEPTA Norristown, NS Morrisville and Harrisburg Lines December 2013
NS local freight H3A serves customers along the Harrisburg and Morrisville Lines. Here a Morrisville Line train passes under the SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line under wires.
It is out from under the wires a minute later at CP Ford onto the connecting track. The three carloads of poles are bound for the PECO siding at CP King.
On another day, another H3A approaches CP King with gondolas for Conshohocken Rail and a single pole car for PECO.
About half the time, H3A stays on the Harrisburg Line, either shuttling cars to and from Falls Yard or servicing the local industry, which, now that EPRY abandoned the last remnants of the Chester Valley Branch, consists of interchange with Upper Merion and Plymouth Railroad at West Conshohocken. Here is a Falls-bound train cranking it up out of Abrams Yard ...
and up to speed through Bridgeport.
