Homestead (PA) Happenings
Author: RuleG

This afternoon, I went to the Waterfront retail complex in Homestead, Pennsylvania (just to the southeast of Pittsburgh) for shopping.  I also used this opportunity for a little railfanning.  As the weather was overcast, all of the photos are being posted as black and white images for greater vibrancy.

1) A narrow-guage industrial locomotive displayed in the median of a road within the complex.  There were no plaques providing any information about this locomotive, nor could I find anything on line.

2) Former Pennsylvania Railroad Depot.  In the foreground is Norfolk Southern's Mon Line (ex_PRR).  On the other side of the depot, not visible in the photo) is CSX's former Pittsburgh & Lake Erie line

3. On the other side of Amity Street from the depot, this westbound NS train with steel coil cars was waiting.  SD60E #7000 is in the lead.

4. Also in the consist was this SD40-2 which is over 42 years old!

5) The action picks up with this westbound intermodal pulled by SD70IAC #1221

6) Next, the train which was waiting crosses Amity Street and passes the depot.

Thanks for looking.

The unit in the first photo appears to be a 25-35 ton Porter.
