Railfan Pictures of the Week - 02/18/2018
 
CSX Trenton Line Langhorne PA February 1 2018
 
CSX W012, a loaded rail train, crossing Bellevue Avenue in Langhorne
Power on W088 were a couple of standard cabs and former Conrail units: GP38-2 CSX 2788 (CR 8219) and ...
SD40-2 CSX 8864 (CR 6518).
The cars in this train are flat cars as opposed to converted gondolas from almost a decade ago (video here).

The last car shows how the rail is dispensed from the trail through a series of funnels and ramps leading to the ground.

This rail train was transporting the rail up north. Click here to see and hear a rail train in action dropping rail, the most interesting sounds are after the 5:00 and 10:00 minute marks.
