Railfan Pictures of the Week - 2/9/2020
 
Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Hatfield, Souderton and Telford PA January 28 2020
 
PN L160, after working Lansdale Yard, heads north at Schwab Road with PN 5342 and 8701.
PN uses the Bethlehem Running Track (formerly the Reading Company Northbound Main on the Bethlehem Branch) between Lansdale and Telford. The Bethlehem Industrial Track (formerly the Reading Company Southbound Main on the Bethlehem Branch) exists (or not) in several different forms. It is used as storage tracks in several sections, has been ripped up in others, and in still other locations, like here at the former Hatfield Station, the rails remain but are isolated and overgrown.
PN L160 approaching Township Line Road.
PN L160 starts the big climb in Souderton. Here the BIT was used to access Moyer Feed at Reliance Road, but they no longer receive hoppers.
Meanwhile up in Telford, East Penn B23-7 ESPN 3153 awaits their arrival at Washington Lane.
Upon their arrival at the former Telford Station, PN L160 cuts off the power and ....
crosses over into ESPN territory to couple up to the pickup.
 
Part Two next week.
