Author: birdman

Mw wife and I raifanned on the NS Middle Division today concentrating on the area betweern Tyrone, PA and Altoona, PA.  
1. Train 593 - westbound coal empties at Tyrone.
2. An eastbound local freight at Tyrone.
3. A westbound manifest with 9 locomotives in Altoona.  Didn't catch the symbol.

Looks pretty healthy for a Pennsylvanian assuming all 7 cars are in service. During Covid it was only 5 cars. I haven't been out that way for over 20 years excepting a couple hours at the Curve maybe 7 years ago. It was just before the prior clearing of trees, which I understand that has recently ocurred again.

Nice pictures,thanks for sharing. It's interesting that NS never rebuilt the pocket track built for helpers to the right in picture #5 between those 2 signals. It was taken out by the big auto rack derailment back in 2014 I believe. The newly built CP Altoona wasn't that old at the time.
