Looks like standard maintenance. I crossed over the line north of Glenside today and there are stacks of new ties lining the ROW.

Looks like the Warminster is getting its push pull as an express from Jenkintown to Center City.

MCG: Train #4815 leaves Warminster at 7:50 AM making all stops to Jenkintown than expresses
to Center City running through to Chestnut Hill West. Highly unlikely that this will be a push-pull
since it does not terminate at Powelton Yard. CNJ should be able to confirm the equipment that
this new train service will use...MACTRAXX
P.S. Thanks, CNJ

The push pull will run on 3420-4571
