Union Pacific Heritage Unit visits South Philadelphia

Post by liftedjeep » Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:21 pm

On Wednesday August 14th, loaded ethanol train CSX K602 arrived at Greenwich Yard in South Philadelphia with UP #1995 the "Chicago & North Western" Heritage on the point. A Union Pacific Heritage is a rarity for this area. They dont make it out this way too often.

I photographed #1995 on the afternoon of the 15th, while she was parked along Delaware Avenue at the main entrance to Greenwich Yard.
