Something old and something new...

(Train sightings on 12-31-07)

was the best way to describe this last day of being trackside for me in 2007 along the Lehigh Line in Manville (NJ).

The something old started out with CSX Q300. It would have for power two SD40-2s, CSX 8834 and CSX 8356, coupled with CSX 106 (AC44CW).

CSX C761 (Manville / Skillman) would have PRR 3001 (GP40-2, ex-CR 3278) and PRR 3057 (GP40-2, ex-CR 3382) shuffling cars around in Manville yard.

At 9:35, NS 212 would arrive on the scene with the something new portion of this day. A trio of UP SD70Ms, UP 4492, UP 4637 and UP 4437, provided the motive power on this day. For me, this was a nice way to close out 2007's trackside trips.
