And SEPTA is still not addressing the weekend bottleneck @ Market East. I've suggested on SEPTA's FB page to move the R2 Marcus Hook/Wilmington's departure time @ Market East from X:29 to X:25.

A side benefit would be the resulting 4-minute increase in layover time at Wilmington every 2 hours. As it is there is almost literally not a minute to spare.

So 9724 and 9745 are no longer PP sets. Which runs are the PP sets now relegated to?

Normally, I would assume that. Except I asked the conductor, who replied "No more bombers." If not for that, I wouldn't be asking "Where are they now?"

The only assumption I have is that they are now delegated to a run on the Main Line. Given the declining reliability of the toasters and the incoming teething issues for the Sprinters, maybe they want to keep them closer to the shop?

I think the Newark express #9254 is being run as a push-pull set as I saw one pass by as I was waiting for a Norristown outbound train #8270 from North Broad on Monday (MLK Day)...

I was sent the following from a reliable source regarding PP assignments:

AM
1502, 1295, 9212
9526
9538
D9301, 9340
6321
6325

PM
9559 (possibly now 9563?)
9561
1565
9251, 9254* (*confirming JeffersonLeeEng's observation)
6374
6378

Believed correct; any typos are all my own work ...
