NS Harrisburg Line Ford Street Grade Crossing Bridgeport PA July 30 2013
Norfolk Southern is doing a little housecleaning, actually ballast cleaning, on the Harrisburg Line, but just south of Bridgeport a failure in the cleaning mechanism caused them to bring the unit up to the Ford Street grade crossing for some attention.
A couple of the scoops on the starboard wheel of the front unit NS 992600 (the motive power and digging portion) were parked on the ground alongside, waiting to be reconnected later that afternoon. The other half, NS 992601, carried the cleaning portion.
The rest of the consist was composed of a Difco side dump car SOU 991980 in Southern Green paint ...
orange water tank car 992602 ...
shorty black diesel oil tank car NS 999834 ...
and boxcar converted to caboose SOU 992253.
