Railfan Pictures of the Week - 1/31/2021
Norfolk Southern Abrams Yard King of Prussia PA December 23 2020
Years ago, actually now decades ago, Abrams was my local haunt. Working nearby allowed me to pop in almost anytime and see what was going on. But that was before the dark times, as in NS. Now I stop there once in a blue moon. A couple days before Christmas, I made a present to myself with a trip down to Norristown for 26T, then a stop over at Abrams. Just as I arrived, NS H44, the transfer run from Abrams to Allentown, was just getting ready to depart. Power for the run was a pair of SD60E's, leading unit NS 7020, the former SD60 NS 6609 ...
and trailing NS 6937, the former SD60 NS 6558.
like 26T, the consist runs in two flavors: general merchandise cars up front ...
among them, this restensiled Conrail Class H1K ballast hopper CR 493179 ...
and a party in the back: autoracks from Philadelphia.
Among them was this well-traveled Conrail autorack on TTX flat car ETTX 801853.
The tail car was a Ferromex autorack. You meet all kinds at Abrams these days.
