Railfan Pictures of the Week - 01/29/2017
 

Amtrak Northeast Corridor, NS Harrisburg Line and CSX Lansdale Yard

Bensalem, Norristown and Lansdale Pennsylvania

August 2000

 
Before the advent of shoving platforms, Conrail trains operating on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor usually had a caboose (aka cabin car in PRR parlance) for crew protection during shoves. Here Conrail Class N21 caboose 21286 is found on the tail end of Conrail local FJ-10 on the Eddington siding.
A caboose on a freight anywhere else around here was an exception, so when this caboose popped up at CP Norris on a run from Philadelphia to NS Abrams Yard, it was a surprise, and coupled up to intermodal cars is an added bonus.
A couple days later and DODX 902 showed up in Lansdale, heading to Tank Car Corporation of America in Oreland PA for either inspection or to have some work done.
