In late August Amtrak restored two crossovers at Perry that allow a train from NS' Port Road Branch to head towards Wilmington by accessing NEC tracks 3, 2 or 1. After Rule 261 (reverse signaling) had been placed in service in the late 1980's these crossovers had been removed, so NS had to use TK 4 to reach Prince before the train could crossover to TK 2 or 3. Wonder if NS paid for this installation?

Lucky13. . .cars that is on this mini-H86 by Prospect Park Sta. It would also appear that the train came
South to Stoney Creek via CSX/SEPTA/CR Chester Secondary since the 9348 is now leading going back to Abrams.

It would appear that the southbound H86 went the back way via CSX/Septa/CR Cheste Sec as the 7714 is back leading.

New to this discussion. Do you mean that it went over the CSX Philadelphia Sub, and then proceeded to the SEPTA Airport Line?
