NS - Neshaminy Creek Viaduct

Photos 

NS 520 @ Langhorne, PA | by Darryl Rule's Photography

A pair of big EMDs lead Norfolk Southern train 520, a loaded coal drag from the Reading & Northern, across the rarely photographed former Pennsylvania Railroad bridge across the Neshaminy Creek just west of downtown Langhorne, PA on March 13, 2016. This view has been grown in with trees for years, but due to a bridge replacement project here, numerous trees were removed, opening up a new view of the Norfolk Southern Morriville Line. The lead unit is a former Conrail SD80MAC and the second unit is a former Union Pacific SD9043MAC.
