From watching the videos on Youtube of the leased equipment, I also saw a bunch of SLIV married pairs reversed as well.

This morning, I saw a 6-car inbound train on the West Trenton line with the following cars from front to back:

144-143 - Married pair reversed
383-382 - Married pair reversed
292 - Single car with pantograph pointing the same way as the pairs in front of it and thus reversed
300 - Single car with pantograph pointing the opposite way from the others and thus not reversed.

292 and 300 had the pantographs pointing at each other.

I saw 292 on June 29 and it was oriented like that. Also, another reversed married pair in the Youtube videos of the leased train sets that included other trains I saw was 457-458. Also, single car 289 is reversed as well.

They MUST be running trains through 30th Street Lower Level as deadheads in the early morning or in another process.

143-144 and 457-458 are still reversed, exactly a month later. 131-132 was also reversed as of earlier this week.

Car 292 is also still turned around. It was on train 306 this morning along with a married pair and a single (406) with the customary orientation and 171-172, which were reversed.

I saw two switched married pairs this morning: 364-365 and the previously-reported 383-383.

Oops! That was supposed to be 382-383! The same day I saw that one and 364-365 reversed, I later saw 109-110 reversed.

396 and 397 have been switched back.

164 led a very late-running 5368 to West Trenton tonight, with 163 right behind it, of course. I wondered if the whole train of 6 cars would be in reverse, but this was not the case.

143 and 144 are still reversed. 144 preceded 143 as the 3rd car on very late-running 326 this morning.

I'm seeing more and more cars "reversed''. I think we're witnessing a "polarity flip".
