New Kid in Town
Author: RDG630

The ESPN Quakertown Operation finally took deliverey of its latest power today at the PN interchange in Telford, Pa. (ex-RDG Bethlehem, Branch) The GP9 came from the Carolina Coastal but had been GTW 4540 and then CN 4621. The locomotive missed many connections which delayed its arrival by weeks.

I havent kept up with this operation.  I guess the U boat and the RS-1 are gone?  Didnt know they got an SW14 there.  Id imagine 2 units is more than enough for this small operation.

Wish they had gotten the track all the way doen to Lansdale.  Having to hand off to another shortline, to get to CSX lansdale, seem like an awful waste..

The logo on the nose, what little we see (photo #2), resembles the original Norfolk Southern Rwy

Does this replace the ex-CR Geometry train power?
