Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/12/2017
ESPN and PN Bethlehem Branch Quakertown and Souderton PA November 11 2017

On a run up to Allentown, made a couple stops on the Bethlehem Branch.

First stop is Quakertown to get some shots of the ESPN power. ESPN 3153 sitting next to leased power GMTX 331.

Also RS1 East Penn 57, which hasn't turned a wheel in years.
Next stop is Moyer and Sons, a former customer on the line, with concrete barriers at the railhead emphasizing "former".
The former Reading Southbound Main, used as a storage track when Moyer was still receiving cars, is now used to store PN MOW equipment.
In downtown Souderton, the former freight house is undergoing a makeover, and more equipment on the rails.
Back in the days of CSX, the southbound main was the running track through Main Street in Souderton, and that continued in the early days of the PN, but now it is also used for storage.
Lord only knows how old this workhorse is.
