Railfan Pictures of the Week - 03/10/2013

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport PA March 7 2013
The drab dreariness of winter, a rather non-descript urban scene and the monochrome of the paint scheme all seem appropriate for NS 39G as it approaches CP Norris.

With a trio of GE widecabs for power, this could be called the "typical NS freight".

Anymore, a good day is when you see a Conrail car like covered hopper Class C13A CR 883937, even though the rust seems to be winning to the point that the CR reporting marks, once white, now appear red. If it weren't for that and the yellow Scotchlite tape, the color palette for someone modeling the car would be fifty shades of gray.
Thank god the Winchester & Western's covered hopper fleet and its color and variety ...
and our friends at Cryo-Trans, who care enough to give their cars names, like "Jeremy Point" on refrigerated box car CRYX 3432.
