Of note, I spotted and MBTA coach northbound near Elkton, MD this morning on #1 track second to last car in NS train. My guess it is going to Delaware Car
for work.
You think that was slow? Next time it will be even slower! Ya see, the headlight will be coming through the steam and its
never gonna get there!

What is the NS local I tend to see daily on the High Line around 11:30? I can't find an appropriate train ID anywhere.

I assume it's either coming from Abrams', West Falls, or Port Richmond.

It's almost always being pulled by a GP running long hood forward.

Probably SP18(Z794). It's a Conrail train out of S. Philly to West Falls and return.
