Railfan Pictures of the Week - 05/21/2023
SEPTA made a rare trip up the Bethlehem Branch on April 16 2023 ...
and a lot of people were there to witness the event here at Washington Street in Telford PA.
SEPTA pups BL15 SPAX 51 and SW1200 SPAX 52 were there to transport a very special cargo.
Extra 51 coupled up to a pair of pieces headed to the Allentown and Auburn Railroad in Kutztown PA. A box car annnnnnnnnd, drumroll please, ...
an ALCo RS1, the former Washington Terminal #57 which had spent time on the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad and the Black River and Western Railroad before winding up in Quakertown PA as EPRY 57 wearing East Penn Railway lettering, which had been painted out and reporting marks changed to ALLN when the sale to the Allentown and Auburn had been announced last year.
More to come ....
