Railfan Pictures of the Week - 7/24/2022
 
It is April 16 2003 and NS has parked a MOW train on the Wood Connecting Track.After the Conrail split, this track saw a bit of action as eastbound detours and reroutes used it to get from Harrisburg to North Jersey, but by 2003 it was seeing little action.
Power for the train was C39-8 NS 8211 which would later wind up on the Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad in Lansdale PA.
A SEPTA train passes by on the West Trenton Line.
The Wood Connecting Track was built by Conrail to connect the former Pennsylvania Railroad Trenton Cut Off, aka the Morrisville Line ...
to the former Reading Company New York Branch.
