New Hope Railroad Engine 7210

An old diesel engine, 7210,  on a siding on the New Hope Railroad line. 

August 2019.  My girlfriend thinks I’m a little nuts. Whenever I see trains, I have to start taking pictures.  This particular engine was sitting on a siding of the New Hope Railroad

Federal law mandates that the “front” of an engine must be marked with an “F”. (reference). You can see the “F” in the photo above.
