Always nice to see your photos. The Junction looks like the Garden of Eden!

Nice Doug.
Funny how they seem to be using main 2 for westbounds between Forge and Phoenix.  I guess the PTC has helped out.

Great sky colors/compositions.  Especially like the sunrise.

They are using Main 1 often for eastbounds west of CP Cromby. East on 2 when the local is shifting at the paper distributor in Linfield.

East bounds for Morrisville on main one, east bounds for Abrams usually on main two, but occasionally will see on main one.  Most west bounds are track one, however last two 39Gs I have seen, which still comes by in the 4-7pm range have been west on main two.  

Traffic has has been reduced due to PSR.  61/60N eliminated, CSX has taken a few coal trains to Carney's Point, although NS is still running 506/507, as far as I know there's a 506 up in Pottstown waiting to be needed.  38G I now see early AM which runs from Conway to Pavonia. There is a nighttime turn H44 taking cars from Allentown to Abrams and back.  14G now runs from Enola to Pavonia, works Abrams on the way.  Usually an early AM sighting but have also seen 14G recently afternoon and early evening.

Thanks for the kind words gentleman, I'm glad you enjoyed them!

Speaking about PSR:  My home is a mile from Perkiomen Jct, But I'm in Minneapolis Monday - Thursday.....so keep that in mind.  Anyway, I've noticed the following in the past few weeks:

One night,  on a weekend, 39G left Abrams with over 250 cars. (via scanner)
One night on a weekend, 17G leave Abrams with 73 by 159. (via scanner)
I witnessed a 17G pass Perkiomen last Thursday night with 161 cars.
I heard (on the scanner) a 39G leave Abrams with 12 cars last Sunday.

Its interesting.

I received a heads up through my Facebopok group on that 17G last Thursday, that train was 10,000ft leaving Abrams.
