SWP 2006 (4)  Contributor's Pick!       
The Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad is here in Lemont Furnace, Pa to pick up seven flatcars of Bradley M2 infantry fighting vehicles that have been refurbished at BAE Systems Land & Armaments, LP. The crew for the train has run out of hours and got taken back to Scottdale, Pa. SWP 2006 will be the trailing engine when the train gets another crew and heads north. Photographed with permission. Update: This local BAE facility has now gone out of business at the end of 2013.
