CR 9158 rolls along the Bedford Secondary south of Queen PA, 10/82

When most of us, me included, look back at Conrail, we think of large trains and good track...big time railroading. There was another side to Conrail. On Oct. 1, 1982 a southbound freight slowly rolls along on the Bedford Secondary south of Queen, PA w/ NW2 No. 9158.

CR 9627 leads WHSN04 upgrade by an anthracite loadout at Cabel, PA on April 29, 1987

Eastbound Conrail Local WHSN04 works upgrade by an anthracite loadout at Cabel, PA on April 29, 1987 with three MP15s. By this time, most of the huge collieries were gone, and the remaining business was loaded at these small truck load outs. Track conditions were rough. Check out the cars on the siding, leaning in all different directions.
