Railfan Pictures of the Week - 06/09/2013

NS Harrisburg Line Abrams Yard and SEPTA Norristown Line Norristown PA May 10 2013
Once CSX Q190 was a morning train, then an afternoon train, and now a middle of the night train, but occasionally things don't work out as planned. Due to crew availablity issues, CSX Q190 made a rare daylight appearance on the NS Harrisburg Line on May 10 2013. CSX ES44AC 903 pulls the train up to the office at Abrams Yard around lunch time.
After cutting away from their train at Abrams, the power reversed (literally from AC to DC) with ES40DC 5335 now about to lead on the rest of the run on the Morrisville and Trenton Lines.
After coupling back up to their train, Q190 continued its journey, coming across the Schuylkill River at CP Norris and onto SEPTA rails at the Norristown Transportation Center.
Then onto the Morrisville Connecting Track at CP Ford.
It should be interesting to see what changes are in store for this area after the Lafayette Street Connector Project (scheduled to begin construction this summer) is completed a few years from now.
