Railfan Pictures of the Week - 5/22/2016

Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Hatfield PA April 13 2016
A day after PN L160 derailed, the cavalry (in the form of Terra) arrived on site.
A pair of Sidewinders were brought in to right the equipment.
A front loader was used to secure the derailed tank car.
With the front loader holding the tank cars, the Sidewinders lifting and PN 8212 pulling ...
they were able to move PN 8218 back onto the rails.
Underneath, the rail had rolled and the rail joint did take a bit of a beating, but held.
They would continue into the night, rerailing the tank cars and within the week, the line was back up and running.
