Pup Power Swap on the D&H
Author: PennRailVideos

3/25. Headed up to the NEPA once again, and it seems everytime I'm up that way, Luzurne-Susquehanna is always doing a power swap over NS between Hudson and Avoca. Here SW7 #50, built in 1950 for the Pennsy, is going to be swapped out with SW1200  #1265. Before the NS dispatcher could let LS make the move, northbound 12Z had to get out of the way. Here they come past Hudson with a fresh Dash 9 rebuild on the point. 

LS 50 is finally let loose to head up to Avoca, the plan was apparently to bring back 'red boi' 1265.

A couple hours later, RJ Corman 1265 came around the bend. This engine has flashing ditchlights which I thought was pretty nifty. 1265 was built in 1963 for the Missouri Pacific.

And finally back onto "home" rails at milepost 686.
