Remarks & Notes 
"Dimensional Extra"

Aside from the routine intermodals, manifests and ethanol trains that traverse the NS Lehigh Line daily, it is common for an Air Products heat exchanger move to occur once every couple of months once the exchangers are ready for shipment. Here we see one of those very moves coming through Phillipsburg with a pair of NS's finest providing power. Although two Dash 9's appear to be overkill for this train, it is necessary to run it with two locomotives as the train has to make a "reverse move" on the CSX Trenton Subdivison to allow it access to the NS Morrisville Line which it takes to its terminus in Morrisville, PA where the exchanger is loaded onto an ocean liner and sent overseas.
