Railfan Pictures of the Week - 1/03/2021
 
Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Lansdale, Hatfield, Souderton and Telford PA December 4 2020
 
On this day, PN L160 departs Lansdale Yard with SD60 PN 8711 running solo, pulling the ex-CN dump car, a covered hopper and a few box cars ...
but by the time they passed Jet Plastica, only the dump car remained, the others dropped on the leased track, ...
and as they depart Schwab Road, they had picked up a couple of tank cars and another covered hopper.
They have recently been working at two spots on the former Reading Company southbound main, here at Hatfield where they are clearing the old track to add more storage, so they could have dropped the dump car here.
But they didn't and, with the dump car NHRR 53033 clearly in tow at Bergey Road, continued north.
The other spot was at Summit Street in Souderton, where they have been clearing out some muck, ...
but they did not drop it there either. One additional spot might have been here, just north of Reliance Road, where they have been dumping on the curve near Moyer.
Instead they went the distance with the dump car ...
all the way to Telford north of Washington Lane to interchange with ESPN. Presumably 8711 and the dump car later returned to Summit Street for a little debris removal.
