Railfan Pictures of the Week - 01/05/2014

Pennsylvania Northeastern Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA January 5 2013 and January 4 2014
A year ago today, and this is what the power lineup in Lansdale looked like for Pennsylvania Northeastern. Ex-CN GP9M 7010 had arrived the previous week and awaited some mechanical work, C39-8 8211 had been sidelined with problems but its sister 8212 was still chugging along for its third owner.
The other two working engines were ex-CP SD40-2 5577 and New Hope and Ivyland C30-7 7087, pinch-hitting as the two ex-CN SD40-2W's have work done in New Hope.
A year later, a little more snow and some things haven't changed. 8212 is still working, 8211 is still not, and an ex-CN GP9M can still be found on Track 2, only now it is PN 7210.
Some things have changed, as the other two working engines are the ex-CN SD40-2W 5342 and 5315, the first in Pennsylvania Northeastern colors, the second still Canadian National.
