Railfan Pictures of the Week - 02/03/2019
CSX Trenton Line CP Berry Philadelphia PA January 28 and 29 and February 1 2019
Having lost their dedicated train from Bradenton to Jersey City, Tropicana has seen their cars bounce around more in the last year than they had in the previous 47, and the new year brings another change, albeit one we have seen before. So, for those keeping score, CSOJ became K650 which became Q740 which became Q140 which became Q032 which became Q410, and now they are back on Q032, and the reason is obvious: diminishing and inconsistent car requirements. Here on January 28 Q032 had only six orange juice cars to go with its usual intermodal.
The next day the Tropicana portion of Q032 accounted for almost two dozen cars, about half the train, but still a far cry from the 60+ unit trains they used to command.
Friday's train, on the other hand, had only one TPIX car. Ouch!
