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.
