Railfan Pictures of the Week - 1/10/2021
Pennsylvania Northeastern Bethlehem Branch Hatfield, Souderton and Telford PA December 2 2020
PN L160 had been doing double duty in December. Their main job has been to deliver cars to ESPN in Telford, the side job is to drop off maintenance of way cars along the line. Here they are shoving a cut of exchange cars north through Hatfield while pulling the PRR flat car carrying rail and New Hope side dump hopper.
The flat car and side dump car were dropped at Hatfield for the MOW personnel clearing the southbound main for new storage track to be laid there...
while the rest of the train continued north.
With all the TTX well cars going into storage on ESPN, PN L160 has often looked more like an intermodal than a shortline local.
Passing Moyer at Reliance Road.
When the ESPN local meets L160 at Telford, they usually swap on the Montgomery County side, but today ESPN is not here and they shove all the way to Washington Lane in Bucks County before cutting off and heading back to Lansdale.
