Railfan Pictures of the Week - 5/15/2016
|Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Hatfield PA April 13 2016
|Looking south from Bergey Road, at first glance it looked like L160 was pulling the tank cars in storage off the former southbound main, but something was odd.
|From Unionville Pike, it indeed looked like something more, and then there is the flag.
|It turned out that the day before, PN 8218 derailed, and it dug in pretty good.
|The good news was that lead locomotive PN 8212 stayed upright and on the rails ...
|and only the lead tank car of the string of empties joined 8218 on the ground, although the rail did roll underneath the second tank car.
