New RR in town

I spotted this newly-painted beauty in the Lansdale train yard the other night...

It belongs to the Pennsylvania Northeast Railroad, a new Lansdale-based company formed to take over the local freight service formerly operated by CSX and Conrail before that.

This new look is a huge improvement over the tired blue paint schemes we have been seeing for the past few decades. The North Penn RR may be long gone, but it looks like the transportation industry that started this whole borough is back in local hands.
