Power Transfer

Was finally able to catch one of these frequent occurrences here at Harrisburg Yard. With two intermodal yards in such close proximity, these power transfers happen often…. usually when I can’t get the camera out in time. It was early morning so the sun was at a problematic angle, so please forgive!

Snapped a quick pic of one of the two elusive Highnose GP-38-2’s we have running around Harrisburg yard. Normally, they’re lashed up together, but today 5002 was going solo.
