Mertztown and NS H47 shifting the Atlas plant.
Author: jim6300loco

Today I was out chasing trains with my one son Andy... you guys remember "Beer Train". Anyway I was visiting my former employer Atlas Minerals & Chemicals who use to own Mertztown Station If you all remember, I use to be in charge of all transportation needs for the Atlas and I also use to keep an eye on the station.. The H47 showed up With a car load of Asphalt so I took a few picturees.
They had a GP38-2 on the headend and a GP38-3 on the hind end. (first time i ever saw a GP38-3 Must be a rebuild of some sort). Anyway here are a few pictures.

Pic 3 H47 Leaving the Atlas by Mertztown Station.

Wasn't the station scheduled to be relocated?

The Station will be re located once the Longswamp Township historical society has the funds to do it. they have 5 years to get it done and they are raising money and seeking grants.
