Railfan Pictures of the Week - 05/12/2013

SEPTA Norristown Line and NS Connecting Track Norristown PA May 2 2013
On this bright and sunny afternoon, waiting for Train 6231 to clear Kalb, was an old friend ...
NS 2100, nee Conrail 9400 nee Reading 2625, pulling NS H3A through the station.
NS H3A has just knocked down the signal at CP Ford with a string of gondolas for Conshohocken Rail and a tank car and covered hopper for other customers.
NS 2100 will turn forty this December, and considering half of her sisters are retired, should feel lucky to be still hanging around, thanks to a number of close clearance customers in the Philadelphia area.
On the hind end was much newer NS 5359 (nee Conrail 8214), which will be only 35 in July.
