Conrail MP15 No. 9627 on Local WHSN11 pulls a cuts of hoppers out of the old Reading Anthracite St. Nicholas Breaker at St. Nicholas, PA on June 7, 1987. The huge breaker had been closed for some years, but was still being used in a very limited capacity to process "fines" from the mountainous clum banks, one of which can be seen in the background. Only three of the tracks remained in service, and all of those were questionable.
