Railfan Pictures of the Week - 12/12/2021
 
SEPTA Main Line and Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Lansdale PA
 
Catching up on some old shots. Back on September 8 2021, CSX C746 arrives in Lansdale with a pair of SD40-2's and a bunch of CryoTrans reefers.
Due to a broken rail up at Schwab Road, CSX has been shoving the cars into the yard, saving L160 the work of shoving back into town.
In late summer and fall, the Stony Creek Branch gets quite treed-in, and the exhaust from the lead unit dislodges leaves which are sucked up by the intakes of the trailing units, in this case CSX 8008 which wears the same number as it did when delivered to the Louisville and Nashville back in 1979.
The intakes of CSX 8006, also delivered in 1979, are clean.
