NS Reading Line This Afternoon
Author: dschlegel

Spent a little more than an hour along the NS Reaing Line today. First stop was Lyons where the GREX tie train is parked on the old Deka siding. 

While there I grabbed a shot of the GREX nose, and a video of 28X with the NS 4003 leading a healthy train.

More to come............

Next I drove through Blandon on a signal check and came back to Fleetwood to catch 19G. The factory buildings were part of the Fleetwood Auto company which spawned the Cadillac brand! 19G had a couple of graffiti free Boxcars as well as an interesting metal load.

All for now, enjoy!

Great pics and vids.  I especially liked the 28X vid.  Love seeing the reefer pigs and reefer containers - especially the Alliance pigs.

Despite some crummy weather you got yourself a nice record of today's railroading traffic there.

That chunk of metal looks like something produced by the Lehigh Heavy Forge, a remaining part of the Bethlehem complex.

I remember when they had a big fire back in the early 2000’s. Saw it from the Minsi Trail bridge on my way home from work.

That was back when the ex Reading Line still was in tact and used in south Bethlehem.
