Railfan Pictures of the Week - 06/02/2013

NS Harrisburg Line Bridgeport PA and Abrams Yard May 6 and 7 2013
NS H8E brought a string of empty Conrail H1K ballast hoppers up from Port Richmond but only got as far as Abrams Yard before being told to park it.
The power featured two high hoods, NS GP38AC 2846 and GP38-2 5070, and short hood GP40-2 3038.
The train continued west the next day, doing a slow roll past a track gang working a ballast regulator on Track 2 at Abrams.
As usual, the H1K hoppers came in various flavors: as delivered CR 493083, with a little rust ...
mostly original with patch job CR 493153 ...
and mostly customized CR 493063, and most of the cars wearing their new NS class designation: either PRO 043-11 or PRO 043-12.
