Title:  NS 38T
Description:  NS 38T/CP 256 comes off the bridge at 7:20AM after finishing its work at Allentown. I almost missed this one thanks to a traffic light on the south end of the hill-to-hill bridge, but I made it to the bridge with only a couple of seconds to spare.

CEFX 3180
Title:  CEFX 3180
Description:  I found myself in the Birdsboro area, so I decided to take a trip down to the Turkey Path to see what was there. This CEFX unit sitting next to the quarry at Dyers was a nice surprise. Fortunately, I was able to shoot it since it was parked next to a public crossing.

NS 19G
Title:  NS 19G
Description:  19G is the next train through the worksite as it passes at 1:13PM after being overtaken by 21M at CP-Tulp. While this particular angle has only been shot about 900 times, a nice standard cab EMD still looks pretty good regardless.

NS 85E
Title:  NS 85E
Description:  A pan shot of the cab of 9171 on the point of 85E. This one would have been nicer if the train were moving a little faster; it was accelerating from a stop at CP-Wyomissing Jct. and it wasn't going any faster than 20MPH. I still like how the background was blurred, and for once I was able to hold the camera steady long enough to get the desired effect.

NS H47
Title:  NS H47
Description:  H47 heads west past the block signal near Deka Road at 3:27PM. The train had just finished working Deka Battery in Lyons a couple of minutes before. The local's departure from Deka was timed perfectly, and I was able to get it at one of my favorite spots on the Reading Line with a sweet SD40-2R on the point.

NS HA13
Title:  NS HA13
Description:  Last shot of a pretty good day on the Reading Line, this photo is of the west end of HA13. It's too bad that the frame stripe and pilot were faked, as this unit had one of the better shades of CR blue that I've seen on a C40-8W.
