Trio of units haul empty hopper train E747 west along the ex PRR high line toward a stop at South Philly Yard.
In the course of about 10 miles, E747 has dropped over 1,000 feet in elevation.
CSX empty westbound coal hopper train is on the 58th Street Connection to/from South Philly Yard in this view from the Grays Ferry Bridge; train is led by Union Pacific power.
A UP-HLCK trio cross the Schuylkill River as they depart west with empty hoppers.
E747 slows down to work Rowleburg yard on its way west. It's good to see the yard full of hoppers again, even though the M&K branch has been severed.
788 crosses the Cheat River with two cars as he works Rowlesburg yard.
Tunnelton was once a busy interchange point between the B&O and the now defunct West Virginia Northern. 747 makes good time through town today as he rolls west with clear signals.
747 passes a modern signal, hardly a proper replacement for the B&O signal bridge that once stood here.
No wonder there's a power shortage recently on NS; they have to help cover CSX's shortage... Here former Conrail unit leads unit coal train west cresting the grade at 58th Street.
After a reverse move at CP River from the Delair branch, 747 starts west onto the high line track at Belmont.
