New York, Susquehanna & Western train HAN-2 rounds the well-known curve at Baird's Farm, NY near Warwick, NY. Seen on July 6, 1992, NYSW B40-8 4008 handled the double-stack train, handling containers for Hanjin headed for Little Ferry, NJ.

 

Susquehanna eastbound doublestack train SLN-4 passes by ZINC, at Franklin, New Jersey on NYS&W's ex-Lehigh & Hudson River mainline. The block signal to the left of the lead unit originally protected a NYSW diamond. This is the former location of a zinc plant, which at one time hosted a small yard. SLN-4 is powered by GATX 2006 and NYS&W 4002 (ex-UP SD40-2, B40-8), seen here on July 6, 1992.
Thanks to Phillip Crabb for corrections and info regarding this location.
Here is a view of Amtrak's engine facility at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. The Schuylkill Expressway and the Philadelphia Art Museum are visible in the right background. This photo was taken in fall 1996; today Genesis units are more prevalent than the F40PH's.

Here is a westbound New Jersey Transit train passing Port Morris, NJ; once the site of an Erie Lackawanna yard. It was also the site of the junction with the Port Morris Cutoff which ran from this location to Scranton as part of EL's east-west main line from Hoboken west through Scranton. This train is pulled by a GE U34CH - a rare passenger unit built for the EL in the late 1960's.

Port Morris yard has been revitalized into a coach yard for NJT, built in 1995. There is some hope for the relaying of track on the Port Morris Cutoff to establish possible commuter service into Stroudsburg, PA and the Poconos. The U-boat has been retired (where are they now?) and replaced by a variety of rebuilt GP40's.

When I was in fifth grade, our class took a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo. My mom was a chaperone on this trip. She had enough foresight to shoot this picture of a SEPTA PCC car. The car is working R-15 on Girard Ave, crossing Carlisle Street in North Philadelphia. Thanks to Bert Gregory for corrections on this photo.
