Sorry it took so long to reply. The PRL crews can run any day, on any of the branches. We try to keep a set routine. There are times we run other days for hot cars. Customer sevice!   Don

Ya i got many. Penn Eastern and NS were picking up and dropping off from each other. My favorite thing to see and capture pictures of is railroads interchanging with one another at the same time.

Does anoyone know of any more info about the PRL on the Octoraro line from Chadds Ford to Notthingham?  I read in some other forum that SEPTA sold them the linefor $30,000 I think.  Any ideas on what the times will be when they run it?  I know I saw 2206 (I think) coming out of Oxford with a few cars on it.  Any other info would be great.

The PRL and EPRY are owned by the same guy. We did buy the Octoraro from septa. The 2206 is the power for the time being. We do not have a web page at this time.

This is a frame of a drive by video shooting somewhere near Reading, PA. Does anyone recognize the location? I'm transfering the video to DVD and I want to label it. Thanks

i believe that's the PRL line that goes south from Reading about 15 miles. Or it's the PRL's trackage rights that they have over a certain NS mainline i believe in Reading somewhere.

The PRL has trackage rights between Sinking Spring at about MP HP 64 of the Harrisburg Line and the NS Spring Street Yard in Reading, PA. They run for about 10 Miles into Spring Street Yard for Interchange and run on the symbol H03.  
 
The location of your photos look to be around the area of Sinking Spring and West Lawn. The towns run side by side and are sometimes hard to tell apart. Also, the #57 has since been placed out of service and has been for about the past 3 years. Looks like you were lucky enough to catch it on the rails.

The 57 in the pictures above is not out of service, it was sent to Boyertown. We used it on that branch while repairs were made to the 52. We also have another 57 in Quakertown that is a RS-1, that unit has been out of service for about 3 years. In Q-town the train crews run as needed. There are 3 customers. GAF roofing in Q-town, Fibermark in Q-town, and Frisco in Telford
