#4: TFT drumhead on Pennsylvania
#5: Relaxing in the Pennsylvania waiting for power to couple on at Delanson to dead head back to Binghamton 
#6: The power set has separated from the lead car, Babbling Brook, in preparation to use a handy run around siding to swap order of the power (to keep NS SD60Es as leaders) and reverse back to couple onto Pennsylvania to start the trip home.

Interesting coincidence to have the TFT train bookended by ex-PRR and ex-NYC luxury cars.

Nice series of photos.  I really like seeing the Santa/Toys for Tots trains running with snow on the ground.  Were the E8s online during the trip?

I think all caring people have to say a big Thank You to everyone involved, especially Bennett Levin and Norfolk Southern.  Since Norfolk Southern put their own locomotives up front, it would have been even better had they used their passenger F units; but I'm not complaining as the most important thing is that they continued a great tradition for Toys for Tots so that many children will have a Merry Christmas.

NS and Mr. Levin sure did a wonderful thing. Many children will have a better Christmas morning because of it. Hats off to them and thank you.
