Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/08/2020
Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Lansdale and Hatfield PA October 23 2020
While they have two SD60's at their disposal, the crew of PN L160 often can handle the job with just one. This day SD60 PN 8701 heads north out of the yard in Lansdale to work the cars that CSX C746 brought in that morning.
CSX C746 leaves the cars on the lease track between Eighth Street and Schwab Road. Normally, the cars are blocked so L160 can pull their cars from the north end and shove them back to Lansdale, leaving the rest destined for interchange with ESPN for the trip to Telford.
L160 went up to the north end to survey the cut of cars ...
which was an intermodal sandwich, with TTX cars in the middle bound for repair up in Quakertown on ESPN.
L160 then went back south, ...
took the switch off the running track, ...
and proceeded to work, separating their cars from those headed for interchange.
