Veteran power leads transfer train in Port Reading

With what is usually Conrail symbol OI-16, we find crew JR-2 in charge of the daily Oak Island-Bayway-Port Reading yard-Browns yard transfer train, heading south on the CR Chemical Coast Secondary approaching CP-PD and Port Reading yard in Port Reading, NJ. Veteran power leads this train today, with NS 3426 (ex-CR 6962, nee-KCS 602, blt10/66) and CSX 8886 (ex-CR 6661, nee-EL 3676, blt 11/72) sounding as good as ever, resplendent in the mid-day sun.
