Railfan Pictures of the Week - 07/02/2023
May Day 2023 had CSX L042 arriving in Lansdale on the Stony Creek Branch and the trio of SD40-2's, CSX 8846, 8008 and 8872, came into town once again reverse elephant style, as in long hood forward. While a certain other southern railroad may view the long hood as the front, this railroad does not and most CSX engineers prefer not to run them like this.
The train, while hitting the horns for the pedestrian grade crossing at Dale, issues a wake up call for the residents of the new Luxor Apartments.
This train had only one of refrigerator cars, as the volume of these cars seems to have tapered off in recent months.
The power parked in the yard and set up for a "proper" run back to Woodbourne the next morning.
