Railfan Pictures of the Week - 06/30/2013

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport and Swedesburg PA June 19 2013
NS H8E pulls off the scale track at Bridgeport with D9-40C 8767 and a photo-shy engineer ...
and SD60E 6935 trailing.
They paused at Swedesburg to pick up the conductor before heading east.
Didn't want to bore you with shot after shot of the same old Conrail H1K's but did see a few that earned honorable mention. The H1Ks have acquired a reputation for being grafitti-magnets, and so many of them have received partial repaints like CR 493113.
Others have received a full repaint, although on CR 493077 you can still see a reverse image of its original "Conrail Quality" paint scheme coming through the rust, while CR 493199 is a complete blank canvas. How long will that last???
