A leased, bright blue (almost Conrail looking) ES44AC was the leader on today's NS 39G. GECX #2039 was built in December of 2014 by GE of Erie, PA. Seen here along 36th St:

The latest SJT video is out featuring the movement of the gun barrels for the Battleship New Jersey, the Norfolk & Western heritage unit, Winchester & Western and West Chester Railroad, plus more scenes of UP and CN power on 39G.

Friday's NS 39G had UP 4300 second and GP38-2 NS 5628 third.
NS 5628 was built in 1969 as GP38 PC 7703.

Two former guns from the Battleship New Jersey came via rail to their new home in Camden last Saturday. After a busy work week, I was finally able to get out this afternoon to see where the guns wound up. A tip from a friend led me to Clinton St in Camden where the guns, still on their flat cars were stored, only feet from the Battleship that they were once part of. I was granted permission by the guard at the front gate to snap a few pictures.

Breech end of the guns, looking towards the New Jersey which can be seen in the background:

Muzzle end, looking back towards Camden:

Clinton St was "littered" on either side with inert 16" projectiles. There had to be at least 30 that I could see:

Are these two guns from the rear turret #3?

Apparently these guns were removed from the New Jersey during a Vietnam War retrofit. Which turret they are actually from, I do not know. Would be interesting to find out however.

Just drifting from the railroad subject for just a moment longer...
OK, so these guns on the flatcars are to be a couple of replacement rifles for the one's on-board the New Jersey?

Negative. One will be displayed near the ship and the other will be trucked to Basking Ridge, NJ for display there.

A yard job with two screaming high hoods came out of Pavonia working a long train. They went about 8 cars north of the River Road overpass before shoving back.

WPCA51 had a long string of tank cars today bound for storage in Tuckahoe.

The switch levers are bagged and say out of service. I haven't checked to see if they were spiked closed.
