New schedule started today- it seems as though Septa has given up completely on running Limiteds during the evening rush- the previous schedule had only one Limited going to 69th but it looks like its gone. It's been a while since I can remember them running them inbound in the morning or outbound during the evening. Kind of a shame for folks that use it from one end to the other but thats Septa I guess.

Also, it looks like track work is starting near Hughes park, as they were running single track between Hughes and Radnor today after the AM rush. The work must be done down near Township and Parkview. Still not sure what they are really trying to achieve, as they seem to be ignoring some of the worst spots track-wise (prior discussions of the curve between Dekalb and Hughes, the curve at Beechwood outbound, and the curve between Bryn Mawr and Roberts outbound).

They're working on upgrading the Matsonford stop. Looks like there's going to a pedestrian tunnel to the parking lot on other side. Not sure why anybody uses this stop as opposed to Gulph Mills, but oh well...

Does anyone know what Septa is doing near county line? It looks to me like they are putting in a siding but I'm not sure. If so maybe they can move all the work equipment out of he lot at Dekalb, you know so that customers can actually find a parking spot?
