The industrial town of Perkiomen hosts B&O units on point of an SV priority manifest. The roar of the train can barely be heard over the whine of Anthracite Coal Companys breaker.

Numerous SV hoppers are staged for loading at Anthracite Coal Companys breaker facility. Frackville Quarry can be seen looming in the background.

East End of Perkiomen Junction. SV tracks are in the foreground, and CC&N tracks are just above them. CC&N bridge crews apply a coat of paint in an effort to catch up on years of deferred maintenance. The truss bridge is the handiwork of the late Paul Jenson. Built in the 60s, the bridge is scratchbuilt entirely from strips of heavy paper. The top section lifts off for easier access to the trackwork.
