SEPTA gets royalties from any use of that slogan in a commuter rail context...

Dunno what if anything it means for North Side in general, but the 04-12-2017 400 left Wachusett on time at 0450 with a total of 4 flats and 1 bi and pushed by a functioning HSP for 4 more 400 axles through the 40.2 than has been recent practice.

2-0 was the 0513/04-14-2017 axle-count for the 40.2 on 2, and given 400's advertised 0512 Shirley time, that sounds like 400 is back to being a short train.

More 700's are on the Northside today.

Was on the Newburyport Express this morning and this train consisted of 1646-1622-900-723-GP.

We passed another train pulling out of North Station as we were pulling in that has car 777 attached to it.
