On the last day of May 2011, I ventured to the normal Tuesday venue at Woodbourne. While there weren't as many trains as usual, it was a quality over quantity kind of day.
4:50 PM -
Starting off at West Lang, we see CSX B738-31 head east, about to take the Wood Connecting Track onto the Morrisville Line. The train has four geeps for power, CSX GP40-2 4408, CSX GP40-2 6160, CSX GP38-2S 6150, and CSX GP40-2 6156.
B738 - Lansdale, PA - Woodbourne, PA turn
4:55 PM -
After waiting for B738-31, we see an odd 17G head west. 17G consisted of NS CW40-9 9642, NS C40-8 8311, CEFX SD60 6006, and NS CW40-9 8946 running lite. CEFX 6006 is ex Indiana Railroad and exx SOO Line. Mr JB Kerr was the engineer today, and a very horn happy one he is!
17G - Morrisville, PA - Conway, PA Manifest
5:05 PM -
Off to CP Woodbourne next, we see the B738-31 shove west into Woodbourne Yard.
5:20 PM -
C770-31 heads to the east end of the yard before backing in after coming back from working Nabisco in NE Philly. CSX GP38-2 2569 and CSX GP38-2 2615 are for power. Note the American Flag on the top of 2569's nose.
C770 - Woodbourne, PA - Nabisco and return
5:51 PM -
Q174-30 heads east through Woodbourne with CSX ES40DC 5362, CSX ES40DC 5369, and CSX CW40-9 9025 for power.
Q174 - Jacksonville, FL - North Bergen, NJ Intermodal
6:00 PM -
SEPTA 6374 heads east through Woodbourne with Comet I 2460 and ALP-44 2308. 2460's K5LA has taken a turn for the worse since last time I saw it. This was the only push-pull to show up this night, I guess 6378 died somewhere else. A Silverliner IV set came east a little later, presumably the 6378, and then went west, presumably as D9303.
6374 - Philadelphia, PA - West Trenton, NJ
6:13 PM -
SEPTA 373 heads west with SL II's 254 and 217 sandwiching SL III's 235 and 238. After pulling into the station, a monster Q410-29 chugs eastbound with five units, with CSX ES44AH 811, CSX ES40DC 5215, CSX C40-8 7508, CSX CW40-8 7706, CSX Road Slug 2287, and CSX GP40-2 6436 in the consist.
373 - West Trenton, NJ - Elwyn, PA
Q410 - Waycross, GA - Selkirk, NY Manifest
7:14 PM -
Another occurrence of my "Surprise train" running gag. As we all sat around, we heard somebody rumbling on the Morrisville Line, and the urgency kicked in. I had to settle for a freehand shot of 14G headed east with NS ES40DC 7522, NS CW40-9 9951, NS SD70M-2 2760, and NS GP38-2 5283.

An early CSX Q740-30 heads east with CSX ES40DC 5229 and CSX ES40DC 5340 pulling the loaded Tropicana Juice Train.
Q740 - Bradenton, FL - Greenville, NJ Tropicana Orange Juice
8:53 PM -
With the days getting longer, getting a half decent shot of 21Q becomes possible, seen here is 21Q headed west with NS CW40-9's 9927, 9777, and 9624 for power.
21Q - Morrisville, PA - Chicago-47th Street, IL Intermodal
