Remarks & Notes 
The crew aboard this former Seaboard System SW1500 returns to Snyder Ave Yard in South Philadelphia. This former B&O facility was somewhat unique in that it was shoehorned into an area between several city blocks. By this date the yard was primarily dedicated to intermodal service. Today there is no trace left of this yard. Lowes, Ikea and a series of chain restaurants have taken its place in the area between Weccacoe Ave. and Christopher Columbus Blvd. The once double-tracked industrial track (seen in the foreground) is still partially in place, although mostly out of service. CSX built a new intermodal yard a mile or so to the south adjacent to what was Conrail's Greenwich Yard.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
