Railfan Pictures of the Week - 03/10/2019
CSX Trenton Line CP Berry Philadelphia PA and PN Lansdale Yard Lansdale PA March 4, 7, 9 and 10 2019
The week started with the "new" old power, PN GP9m 7010 and NHRR GP30 2198, working the PN Bethlehem Branch on Monday as it has since Tiger Lady PN 5342 went down earlier this year.
Don't worry though, help is on the way. On Thursday, Q300 rolled through CP Berry with two engines dead in town and destined for Lansdale.
The Pennsylvania Northeastern has bought a pair of SD50's, the former CSX 8701 ...
and former CSX 8711. Interestingly, neither engine had its reporting marks painted out, a usual formality for such moves.
The engines were dropped off at Woodbourne Yard so they could be taken to Lansdale by transfer job CSX C746 that night.
However, C746 did not run until Friday night and dropped off the engines before returning to Woodbourne in the darkness of Saturday morning, leaving them at the signal on Station Track 1.
By Sunday they had been moved to the end of Yard Track 4 along side GP9m PN 7210.
