Railfan Pictures of the Week - 03/17/2013

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport PA March 7 2013
NS Local H8E has just started its run back to Abrams from Swedeland, and it is already half way home. Former Conrail SD60I 5644, now NS 6757, leads catfish 9262 and the 63 cars it pulled out of the yard where they interchange with the Upper Merion and Plymouth Railroad. At over 3000 feet in length, and only traveling two miles, the train was already one quarter the way there before they left.
Most of the traffic comes from the steel mill across the river in Conshohocken, with a nice variety of gondolas ...
some ore jennies now marked for Brandywine Valley Railroad (BVRY) but still bearing their former owners moniker, Sidbec-Normines ...
and an interesting assortment of plate steel on flat cars of various owners.
