H68 through Topton with SD40-2’s this evening
Author: dschlegel

While taking a walk with my daughter tonight we were treated to the H68 headed west to Reading. It's not a great shot but demonstrates how the Reading Line splits Topton right in two. The view is from the corner of Franklin Street looking north at the Home Ave crossing. Enjoy!

Also, the 21V show is over. I heard the crew call the MOC center 2 nights in a row and report the 7016 with turbo issues.
Then the Lehigh disp. told them they were good to go with 2 group 4`s. I shot 21V on Monday night with all 3 online and 7016
screaming. Then Tuesday night I shot it with 7016 offline and only 6967 and 7023 doing the honors with a big train. I just saw 20V
with 7016 missing and only the other 2 on the train. Nice to hear it while it lasted.

That’s a damned shame, I was really enjoying it too!
The H44 today had an SD40-2 and an SD60E, the usual two 6943 and 6945 mist be in for inspection I guess.

Oh well, it was a ton of fun while it lasted listening and watching them!!

I saw H44 go west on Wednesday morning with 9704-6945-6943. Both 60E`s were offline. They may have some issues also.
The 3423-6981 pair were on H11.
