Railfan Pictures of the Week - 02/03/2013

Pennsylvania Northeastern Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA January 29 and 30 2013
With PN 8211 ailing the past month, New Hope's C30-7 7087 has been pinch hitting on the runs to Warminster.
The other working unit 5577 lacks the cab signal equipment required by SEPTA.
But New Hope wanted its baby back so a replacement for the replacement was required.
On the evening of January 29 2013, 7087 was swapped out for a unit that had been in Lansdale only once before, but is destined to become the new favorite: Pennsylvania Northeastern SD40-2W 5342.
With ex-CP, ex-CN, ex-NS and ex-CR units and a DRG&W-inspired PN unit, Lansdale has become one of the more colorful yards around.
