Conrail CA-07 replaced CSXT 759.
Old news- C759 and C788 were abolished by CSX and replaced by Conrail crews almost half a year ago.

Here's SC21 (former 788 job) heading north on the Chester Secondary way back in May-

-SMS Lines in Bridgeport hosted their very first "Wheels & Rails" car show today. On hand for the festivities were three of CSX's "Tribute Units".

CSX #911 "Spirit of our First Responders",
CSX #3194 "Spirit of Law Enforcement" &
CSX #1776 "Spirit of our Armed Forces".

Special thanks to CSX for loaning out the locomotives for today's event, and to SMS Lines for hosting!!

Very nice. I saw the units come north this week on the Ashland, VA webcam, had no idea where they were headed.

You've certainly had a couple busy days. :)

Get the popcorn ready for this hour and ten minute long video! Featuring the latest happenings in South Jersey on former PRSL (and CNJ) territory, this video is loaded with everything from the common local to the popular heritage unit.      
Some of the highlights include two Norfolk Southern heritage units, a Union Pacific heritage unit, and the new CSX commemorative units that were on display at the Wheels & Rails car show at SMS. All three loaded coal trains from Beesleys Point were captured, marking the end of the coal era on the former Clementon Branch. Also, a few scenes of the Winchester & Western in Bridgeton and Millville can be seen. We'll even witness the last run of a Conrail engineer before retiring after 41 years of service.     
From a Chessie work train, to NJT's Atlantic City Line, to D.P.U. freights right here in South Jersey, this video should not disappoint, so I hope you enjoy it!

Shieldalloy Metallurgical Corp (SMC) is removing soil contaminated with heavy metals from their Superfund site in Newfield. They use a Shuttlewagon Commander SWX 420 to move the gondolas.
Shifting to another track.

Some "fringe" railfanning...

Bound for South Jersey, I caught NS 38G in Bala Cynwyd this afternoon, awaiting a crew to take the train across the bridge. Ordinarily, I wouldn't even bother posting since the train hadn't yet made its way into Jersey. But since the Conrail Heritage Unit was on the point, I figured I would share a few pics from just outside the realm of the Garden State.

NS #8098 Conrail Heritage:

Over top of Righters Ferry Rd. Note the Reading Railroad "diamond" date stamp of 1949 on the bridge:

Good catch, Ben. 8098 certainly needs a bath.
