Does anyone know anything about the newly fenced in area in Oxford?  Some one in town said that the railroad did it.  Any Ideas what they might do with it or whats going on with it?

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

 
 
The covered hoppers are for Boyertown Drug Plastics (They make plastic medicine bottles).  They contain plastic pellets.

This past weekend I saw that the East Penn operation in Quakertown was utilizing the RS1 for the first time in years.

On wednesday late afternoon, I saw her in Perkasie with a single box car returning north and then yesterday, she was M.U.ed with the 3153, who was just freshly painted into the EPRY Blue and Yellow scheme, hauling the freight again.

I was in Emmaus a couple of weeks ago and saw them at Harrison Street. I'm sure other people probably have more to add.

Hi People, Im Tom from NYC. I have some questions concerning the EPRY. I hope you dont mind. # 1 does the EPRY still have the 2 GP-10s 7554 and 7557? # 2 I see there are at least 2 Ex LIRR 2900 series coaches on this railroad does any one have their former LIRR #s. # 3 does any one have any videos of this unique railroad? If so could they please let me know? Thank You. Tom.

Coolo, Santa  what kind of power are they going to use for that? I wish I was able to get down to PA. I saw a few pages back that someone has a video of the GP-10 # 57. Is there any chance that I can obtain a copy of this video? I like the old U-23Bs and the GP-10s they look really cool. Lastly what are the chances of the passenger operations making a come back? I would like to get a ride on one of them someday. Thank You to whomever replies.

More then likely, the power will be the U-23B, #2206.  That is the one that they assigned to the rail line here.   As for the consist,  I have no idea what they have planed for the trip.   I will be going to it and will take my camera with me and take some shots.  As for passenger service, who really knows.  I think that it will come back, but not for years as the area is slowing being developed.
