With track work on #1 and 2 tracks, H-86 came by Prospect Park Sta on #4 track instead of the usual #1 track. Very cool since that put the train
literally right in front of me.

MAJOR Change in the schedule of H-86! No longer is H-86 ordered out of Abrams at 8:30pm. It is now 12:01am with a new routing going back to Abrams.
Southbound H-86 will still run the NEC. But going North will run CR Shared Assets/Septa Airport Line and CSX back to RIVER.
I caught the inagural southbound run this morning past Ridley Park Sta.
