You have that all wrong that is a power transfer with the hopper doing the pushing...well it sounds good. Nice pics Bruce.

Saw the NRFF day before Saturday 9-17-2022 and had more than 1 car...too fast to accurately count but could have been about 50 or so.
Blasted through Tamaqua, PA. Those 4 EMDs seemed to be in run 8 and it showed. 

Was getting ready to order an early supper but it seems the desert was served before the main entree arrived!

By the way, the Tamaqua Station Restaurant at the actual station offered a great meal and the restored station waiting rooms are worth the visit.

Are the meals as good as the ones at Palmer, Mass next to the B&A?

Odd to see a RBMN car with grafitti. I suspect it will be taken care of quickly!

Never been to Palmer, MA but just about any meal next to an operating rail line with a train passing by has to be good.

I heard the R&N come back from the NS in Reading on Saturday morning with the 2 MP15's and 122 cars.
