Has SEPTA started boarding peak trains on 0? I don't think I've boarded a push pull on that track in maybe 10 years, and that was a day when there was an early snowstorm commute.


Typically only protects, extras, or other special cases use 0. Cynwyds are on 5.

2308 is sitting at Suburban Station on 7 track so it looks like it will be on 1565 tonight.

Will 2308 lay over the holiday out in Thorndale? Anywhere a good shot might be obtained??

Ben: 2308 - and many of the push-pull trainsets will spend the 4th of July at the Frazer Shop complex yard.
Frazer Shop is located off of Sproul Road (PA 352) south of Lancaster Avenue (US 30) along the Main Line ROW.
Not sure if trains yarded at Frazer are visible from public property or if visitors would be welcome with permission...
