Question: sources I have found tell me that H86 is a nightly run from Abrams to Stoney Creek. Why would this train be anywhere near Prospect Park? Has the ID since been reassigned?

Stoney Creek is the name of the yard located just off coridor between Marcus Hook and Chester.

McGrath618,
There's 2 routes the H86 (8pm-8am) can take to Stoney Creek from Abrams Yard.

1. Abrams to RIVER, over the High Line to PHIL interlocking then Amtk's NEC to HOOK and onto
the Linwood Branch straight into Stoney Creek Yard.

2. Abrams to RIVER and down the CSX Philly Sub to Eastwick and onto CR's Chester Secondary(SEPTA Airport Line).
CR diverges from the Airport Line at 90th St. North and then the Chester Sec/Chester Industrial on in to Stoney Creek Yard.

So Yes, the train does run by Prospect Park Sta to and from Stoney Creek. The NEC route is much faster than taking
the Chester Sec.

I was confusing Stoney Creek with the CSX Stony Creek Secondary in Montgomery County. Thank you for the clarification.

And in an instant all the Signals dropped to RED. . . Just as H86 was nearing Prospect Park Sta.
So the H86's head end was stopped directly on front of me at the station.
