I really, really never thought I'd see the Northbound H-86 by Ridley Park/Prospect Park stations again...........but a chance drive by Ridley Park Sta
at precisely the right moment garnered me a blast from the past!!

Southbound H-86 with a small train by Prospect Park Sta! The last H-86 I posted had the SD60E as 6998, it's really 6997.

Thursday 6/14 I saw NS train 472 (sorry forget the letter for the symbol) southbound at Bush Int. with an NS GE leading two CSX GE's and a loaded CSX coal train. I hazard a guess it was a detour move over the NEC to Baltimore due to the derailment in Howard St. Tunnel.
You think that was slow? Next time it will be even slower! Ya see, the headlight will be coming through the steam and its
never gonna get there!
