Today, the first day of September saw a fantastic lash-up on NS 39G! The outbound manifest train had quite the assortment of power, with five different locomotive classes, some very rare to South Jersey.

Photographed while tied down at Cove Rd, just after a deluge of rain:

Behind the Dash 9W leader, was NS #4028 (AC44C6M). Built as NS #8884 (C40-9) in 1995. Rebuilt as NS #4028 (AC44C6M) in 2017:

Third in the set of power was NS #2806 (SD75). Built in 1995 as ATSF #230. Purchased by NS in 2014:

Second to last was NS #3366 (SD40-2). Built in 1977 as CR #6421:

Finally, and in my opinion the best unit in the lash-up, was NS #4616 (GP59). Built by NS in 1989:

The latest South Jersey Trains video is out for the Summer of 2018. It features two NS heritage units, the inaugural run of the first SEPTA City Sprinter, the final deadhead move of all Atlantic City Line equipment to North Jersey plus much more.
