Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/07/2021
SEPTA West Trenton Line Jenkintown, Lower Makefield and Middletown PA November 5 and 6 2021
In anticipation of SEPTA preparing to replace the rail on Track 2 on the West Trenton Line from Neshaminy Falls to Iron, a rail train sits on the northbound layoff at Jenkintown.
When I caught up with them the next morning, they had started bright and early and by 10:00 they were already south of Edgewood Road.
The shadows were a little less of a problem by the time they passed Stoney Hill Road. SEPTA was maintaining service by single tracking from Wood to Iron, and it was a bit of a surprise to see a deadhead Bomber set heading to Trent.
The light was much better at Heacock Road as a Silverliner V set passes.
The CSX Trenton Line was busier, with 7 trains passing the rail train in about 5 hours. CSX Q403 was three of those trains: first the engines and four box cars ran from Trent to drop off at Woodbourne, then back light against their train at Trent, and now west one final time.
Power for the train was genset SPAX 70 and ...
SW1200 SPAX 52, looking all of her 67 years.
