I can't say I've seen many photos of their freight operations. Last I know of, they were running freight on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They run light power down to Warminster, work customers there, take the interchange to CSX at Warminster, and then back to New Hope light power. I recall on duty time as 0800, but don't hold me to that. Suffice to say it's the typical "be there early" routine as with most shortlines. But essentially, their freight ops are a "terminal" operation around Warminster, and that may well be the reason you don't see or hear much about them.

There is an unpainted locomotive on the roster, and that is ex CP SD40 5577. I have no idea if it has entered service or not. Last I heard, it had yet to be used, but it has been some time since I've seen any mention of that.

If I'm not mistaken, the diesels are regularly used on excursions, and the steam only runs on certain days/trains. Their website may give details on that.

I'd certainly welcome any further information from our members.
