Railfan Pictures of the Week - 10/29/2017
ESPN Bustleton Branch Philadelphia PA October 25 2017
Made a stop by the ESPN Bustleton Branch, and nothing is happening, nor does it look like anything will ever happen there again.Wonder Bakery at Blue Grass is closed, the steel cars are no longer heading to Red Lion Road, in fact all the customers look like they have moved on.
Sitting on the Smurfit-Stone siding, GP10 ESPN 1700 has been on the branch for over a decade ...
originally as PRL 2202 (still showing under the latest coat of paint), ESPN 2202 and now finally ESPN 1700.
The engine may look abandoned, but the AEI tag is up to date.
Sitting forlornly with ESPN 1700 is ATC 8635, formerly owned by Allied Tube and Conduit, and of course Conrail before that, and NYC before that.
The taggers unfortunately have found them ...
and from the looks of the trackage, they don't appear to be going anywhere..
