66Z pauses briefly before proceeding east with empty gons, while C52 prepares to begin heading west to Cresson with coal empties for the RJC.
NS #145 rounds the big curve at Bates behind two standard cab SD70's: ex-CR 2563 and NS 2510. I spent hours railfanning the NS with nary a Catfish to be seen.
NS 14G passes under CP Rockville, after crossing the Rockville Bridge, as it heads westbound into Harrisburg Yard. ***( My 200th Railpictures.net Photo. )***
After snapping his own photo, 8-year old "Burgh Boy" exchanges a wave with the conductor of westbound 37A.
A very short 38G departs Allentown Yard, crossing the bridge over the Lehigh Canal.
NS manifest train 18G passes a switch lever in Bethlehem's River Yard with two spartan cab EMD SD70's back to back, seeing two SD70's back to back on any train on this line is a first for me.
Closely following 22A
NS 2563 leads an empty hopper train under the PRR signal bridge at the Route 53 overpass.
NS 2563 just crested the west slope and is setting the brakes for the long slow run down the Allegheny mountains into Altoona, Pa.
A 40mph pacing shot of the lead unit on a short 224. Most Westbound trains are down to a crawl here, but todays 224 is short and was moving at track speed
2563 sits in command of a train sitting in wait for its time to go
Train leaving toward Big Stone Gap
