Description:  East Penn Railroad SW-900 52, still in the colors of former owner Philadelphia Bethlehem & New England Railroad, sits in the small yard at Topton near the NS interchange with the Kutztown Branch. The East Penn gave up operations on this line a little over a year after this photo was taken with the new Allentown & Auburn Railroad taking over. The vintage 1937 unit would later move to the ESPN Venice Industrial Track operation near Philadelphia.

Description:  Still awaiting departure to other East Penn operations, this old switcher sure blends in with the rest of the historical equipment arriving on the line. EMC constructed this unit in 1937 as a model NC for the Philadelphia Bethlehem & New England Railroad. Originally numbered PBNE 209, it was later rebuilt as an SW-900 and renumbered to its present road number, the first of two locomotive on the PBNE roster to be numbered as such.

Description:  Two switchers, both built by the Electro Motive Corporation in 1937 for the Philadelphia Bethlehem & New England Railroad, meet once again on the former RDG Kutztown Branch, although under two different owners. 52, a former NC, is now owned by the East Penn Railroad while 206, a former SW, is property of the newly formed Allentown & Auburn Railroad.
