I'll start this off with some stuff I already uploaded, Monday's Q405 at Darby:



Had a healthy-looking CSX SD50 trailing:



The album is here, but that's all that's in it so far. Later on I'll be uploading shots of a wandering Conrail GP38-2 and freight car shots from the 405. I'll also be making a post detailing the trip myself and CR6841 took Sunday.

Here are the remains of a French-built 0-6-0 I spotted at the Trois Rivières rum distillery in Martinique.

Highlights from Saturdays' Reading/Harrisburg Line trip:

38G got out while Matt and I were scouting the yard, but trackwork made him stop at Macungie, and we got there just before he got a good signal:



Moving west, we caught 34M at Mertztown:


19G finally got out of Allentown and he caught up with us west of Lyons. This shot is one of my favorites from the trip:


There was actually nothing going on around the outskirts of Reading, so we stopped in Sinking Spring when a few trains popped into the picture. Here's 66Z, with a real treat leading:


Next up was this 214 with a solid set of UP power (SD70M/SD70ACe/SD60):


We continued west, and stopped in Wernersville for 33A:


33A went into emergency, a pair of air hoses separated practically right in front of me. And by this time it was getting late, so we decided to head back east. But a 262 was being run around the stopped 33A, so we caught it in Sinking Spring:


The signals to the east told us there was a westbound coming, so we waited. Too bad I musjudged the train's speed and the shot came out blurry:


33A eventually got going again, with this 36Q following behind in the last moments of daylight:


DAX is Occidental Chemical, formerly Diamond Shamrock, originally Diamond Alkali:


The Lancaster and Chester could have easily been a regional road in Southern/Southeastern PA, but that was not to be...:


NS billet car on 34M, I have no idea what it was doing at Abrams Yard:


Nice, rusty N&W hopper:


PRR 2100, ex-CR 9400, nee-RDG 2625


I didn't know the R&N started buying old Thrall coal gons:


A REALLY beat SOO gon:


YARR gon:


Zinc Corp of America covered gon:
