Notice the cameras going up.  About every 4 feet.  Was told they are also infrared.

Few from me this week...

CP local, very much overpowered, in the Sabic Spur meeting an EB crude oil:

CN EB loaded crude oil with the lead unit smoking from the engine compartment. Usually GE's burn from the stack... think we've got a rebel here:

CN 'local' headed back to Belleville from Toronto... nice to see old Geeps stretch their legs:

I was able to get a picture of an intermodal train crossing York Rd outside of Dillsburg, only to realize after I took camera down the NS GORAIL unit was 2nd in line  :facepalm:.

Adam, I saw it this morning too - it went by my place of employment about 7AM.

Also, two Heritage Units passed through overnight and were in Cresson by mid morning.

This afternoon, my daughter, Aly, and I supported the local tourist railroad, the Wilmington & Western Railroad, which runs on the former Landenberg branch of the B&O alongside the Red Clay Creek in New Castle County, Delaware.   Today's trip ran from Greenbank station to the Mt. Cuba picnic area (where we had a quick snack during a thirty-minute stop) and return.

We were fortunate to ride aboard former PRR doodlebug #4662, "The Paul Revere."



A history:
Quote from: Wilmington & Western RR website
Motor car No. 4662 was built by Pullman Standard, outfitted by Brill, and outshopped on April 29, 1929. The car is self-propelled, and features both passenger seating and baggage storage. Cars such as this were usually referred to as "Doodlebugs" by railroaders, and they saw service on lightly-used branch lines where it was not economical to operate a full-length train. The car was originally powered by two Winton 175hp gasoline engines, but was rebuilt in the winter of 1942-43 with two Cummins HBIS-6 175hp diesel engines. She was retired from service in April 1959, and was later purchased by the National Capital Trolley Museum (NCTM). The 4662 never operated at the NCTM, and was stored outside in North Baltimore where it was heavily vandalized. Historic Red Clay Valley Inc. (HRCV), purchased the car in March 1967, and brought her back in service in December 1979. In 1989, HRCV received a grant from Revere Copper and Brass to restore No. 4662, and she received new diesel engines, draft gear and brake system improvements, as well as interior renovations. The car was dedicated as "The Paul Revere" on June 7, 1990, in honor of the Revere Foundation’s generous gift, and she is the only Pennsylvania Railroad doodlebug in regular operation. The 4662 features a modern bathroom, a 110-volt electrical system for air-conditioning and heating, a seating capacity of 60 passengers and a small baggage area. "The Paul Revere" is assigned to our "Ride-To-Dine" dinner trains and is also perfect for small charters.
