New Haven Transfer Freight

Greetings Blog Followers,

Rail fans at the recently opened North Side Yard caught this transfer freight from the New Haven RR behind a NH SDP40 and EL SD45. Both locomotives are Athearn Blue Box models. The New Haven SDP40 was "hardwired" and runs extremely well. The Erie Lackawanna SD45 was custom painted in the Bicentennial livery.

New Haven engines and caboose leave North side yard "caboose light". Union agreements allow for transfer of freight from one railroad's yard to another railroad's yard. The delivering railroad however cannot pick up freight at the delivery yard and must return to home rails with engines and caboose.
