Thanks!

 

Harrisburg and Altoona are both accessible by Keytone and Pennsylvanian Amtrak trains, both serve HBG and Altoona is served by the Pennsylvanian once a day. If your looking for stuff closer to the city take the NJT Raritan Valley Line to Union, Roselle park or Bound Brook which are either on the Lehigh Line or next to it.

Just wanted to make one comment then get back to viewing the rest of the photos. NS #999 is a brookville diesel battery yard switcher, its engine is meant to charge the batteries only, which in turn power the motors. Its main job is assembling the train and other engines, and helping out with larger stuff in the yard. You will see more of these types of yard switchers in the future, as well as units with more than one engine (smaller size, started up only when needed) to increase fuel economy.
