Remarks & Notes 
A "bitty" coal train to the coke works (probably HB8, "The Star") comes off the old Lehigh Valley Main (on the south bank of the Lehigh River) and enters the old Reading Bethlehem Branch, passing the freight elevator on the Philadephia bound platform of Union Station. Above the train is the iconic Hill-to-Hill Bridge, still with a ramp down to Union Station. Also, above the GP30 is Lehigh Valley Railroad headquarters. The train was likely from Rutherford Yard in Harrisburg, had come in through Calypso Yard and was on its way to Iron Hill Yard or Saucon Yard.
