Railfan Pictures of the Week - 4/04/2021
SEPTA Lansdale Station and Pennsylvania Northeastern Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA February 5 2021
Now that spring has sprung, a quick look back at a cold day in hell, er, February. On this nippy morning the PN crew is out early in the yard, moving the four engines on the runner north to Cannon Avenue. Normally L160 is not out until after 8:00 AM.
The reason becomes apparent as CSX C746 arrives in Lansdale, coming in at CP Dale off the Stony Creek Branch ...
and taking the runner instead of the industrial track. One can assume that the PN crew has not had enough time to clear the switches north of the yard, so they are bringing the thankfully short train in rather than the standard operationg procedure of running it up to Orvilla Road to drop the cars on the lease track.
The CSX power would cut off in the yard and park in the usual spot on the runner.
