Norfolk Southern 4036 leads a westbound freight out of Conway Yard at Rochester, PA, on March 19th, 2000. The B23-7 leads new CSX SD70AC 768 and rebuilt ex-conrail GP38, bow CSX 2719. The GP38 has had its nose classification lights removed during the rebuild, making it harder to identify it as a former Conrail unit.

KEEP ON TRUCKING - On Saturday, July 29th, 2000 Phillipsburg RR Historians and the Anthracite Railroads Historical Society moved CNJ X-29 boxcar 92079 from a siding on the Bel-Del to the PRRH Museum site in Phillipsburg, NJ. It is seen rolling down South Main Street in Phillipsburg. Matt Winter

The plan was to pick it up with a 15-ton capacity forklift, and set it onto a flatbed trailer. When the car was discovered to weigh 18 tons, a crane was summoned for the job. While in the air, the cable snapped and the car fell 20 feet, damaging the frame. Despite the mishap, the car was eventually moved and is now at the PRRH site. Matt Winter
