Well I was down along the Octoraro line today near Kelton and took some pics.  #55 I thought was long gone, but guess it's not.  As for the other engine,  I know nothing about it.  The one Question I have is, does PRL owns those engines, (well make it two questions) and are they operational?

You had some beautiful light for those photos, Rob.  Sad to see the old equipment rotting away tho.

RMDI is a Locomotive Junk Yard, It pop's up some times on the RBMN Board some times though. So it seems #55 is going to the scrapyard/graveyard.
 
Btw Does anyone know about the EX CHR Engines That I Know they had a while ago, I belive they were at the ex tourist RR operation....

both of the engines do not belong to the epry they were sold to a scrap dealer and are awaiting their fate with the torch. the sw1 needs power assemblies and the b- 30 which once ran at new hope buring the mc hugh days has a bent frame on the long hood end

Here is another piece of equipment that I found along the line in Oxford.  I saw it sitting in the back as I was going in to get something to eat at the diner.  I do have some other pics of it if anyone is interested.

In my haste, I called a GE an Alco.  There may be one or two other oversights there; however, I have yet to go back and rewrite it.  In time, though, I will and add more photos.

Both of them have the same markings on them.  I think that they have been on them for sometime because the other engine has the paint chipping off where the writing was.  So I went to the other engine to get a better shot as to what the writing was on them.

A little late to post but I caught the Perk crew switching at East Greenville last week. Weird thing was, they tied up after that and it was only after 9 in the morning. I assume that crew left to do work on another PRL line...

Do the Penn Eastern interchange with CSX at Wilsmere?  NS at Edgemoor?  I once saw steel plate on a westbound thru Cumberland and I wondered where it came from.

what kind of freight traffic does PRL do on the Colebrookdale branch. There always seems to be a lot of covered hoppers but i don't know who their for. And theres also that place at the end of the line in Boyertown but don't know much about that. Only went down that way once. Thanks for any info
