Railfan Pictures of the Week - 12/17/2023
 

Pennsylvania Northeastern's famous Tiger Twins welcomed another to the fold earlier this year, a fraternal and internal sibling, ex-CP SD40-2 5577. Now a set of triplets (though not identical), there had been opportunities to catch them together in the yard. The hope was that they might be operated as such, but PN L160 had only used a pair at a time for the first few weeks. Finally, on June 16 2023, railfans got their wish and the trio traveled up to Telford and back. Here they are passing the old freight station at Souderton PA with SD40-2W 5342 and 5315 bracketing the new guy.

Having shoved the outbounds onto the leased track, the Tiger Triplets head back to the yard. I have not seen them operated together since.
