A Southern Yard in the Northeast

While Abrams yard was originally a Reading yard, today it's making use of Southern power like this remote control GP38-2 high hood 5210 and sister engine 5254 which was also once a high hood. If you got good eyes you can see Southern HU 8099 in the background among the consist of local H79 to Pavonia only adding to the Southern feel in the yard

I didn't see any heritage units when I went there yesterday, but I also spotted a high hood Geep.

They're always there. Remote control yard switchers

They operate usually under NS HM01 and are usually switching mid day usually before H79 from Pavonia arrives (That becomes 39G) 5254 is the most common engine and controls the functions of the others hooked up to it. There's about 3 or so high hoods there, 5210 seen here, 5201 (the engine room doors are left open on it XD) and 5207 though on occasion they rotate power and swap on manifests like 14G and 17G sending any to Reading or Enola if they are needed elsewhere but 5201, 5210, and 5254 tend to stay in Abrams

Very useful information. 5201 is the one I saw, and according to that is a former Southern unit :)
