Monster 34A with consecutively numbered DPU’s
Author: dschlegel

Just rolled west through Lyons PA on the Reading line. Seemed to have a bit of everything except a passenger car. DPU’s are 4093 nose to nose with the 4092.
Nothing too special, but neat all the same.

As an update, the crew called the signal at West Laurel before the Blandon detector went off. That’s got to be close to three miles long!

Thanks Chewie! I guess I overestimated the distance from the Blandon detector to West Laurel.

How long did it take to make that train up?

I counted 163 mixed freight including a lot of autoracks, and 4 intermodal cars - 1 5-platform spine car and 3 3-well containor cars.  Looks like the 11J's rack cars wound up on 34A.  I wonder if the intermodals are the former dockside traffic handled by 36T/37T.
