Saturday and Sunday in Harrisburg
Author: mp109

Saturday was sunny in Harrisburg while Sunday was cloudy, but at least it wasn't brutally cold or snowing. Here we have a few of the 
more interesting trains from the two days. 
1. Here we have the 746 coal train which will be heading down the Lurgan line. The signal maintainer was working on the crossing at
    Winding Hill road on the branch and wanted a train to go by at track speed; 50 mph, to check timing of the gates apparently. The lady 
    engineer wasn't so sure that they could make 50 mph with their 15,000 ton coal train! As it was they only made it to 35 mph. 
2. DPU on the coal train pushing up the grade to the Lurgan line. Only the second DPU I've seen in this area lately. 
3. Brand new SD70ACe, nice and shiny, but for how long?

4. HO-01 local led by a slug unit. 
5. The 20G (new symbol?, or did I hear it wrong?) with the highest numbered ET44AC unit. 
6. On Sunday 12R's 4th unit was an AC44C6M still in primer.

7. Empty tank train 65T had the 1800, a specially painted SD70ACC. 
For pictures of the passenger trains on Saturday and Sunday see the Passenger board.

The train in picture #3 was 21M. I saw it west of Duncannon.

There was an earlier DPU coal train that went down the Lurgan through Front Street around 8:30 in the morning, but I foo, but I forget the symbol.

Great shots.

#7. I like that paint scheme over the dull black one.
Really neat.

20G is not a new symbol. Comes off the BNSF at Chicago.
