I also heard that they were entering service on Monday the 14th. Although there are nine Sprinters on the property, I don't know that they've all completed acceptance testing nor how far engineer and crew training has progressed. I would imagine that they will be phased in over the next few months and the meatballs will soldier on a little longer.

That said, I believe I heard a Sprinter coming through Jenkintown around 3:00 today.

ONE is supposed to begin service tomorrow on a dedicated rotation. Whether or not it happens will be determined tomorrow, although as of right now it is looking extremely unlikely.

2308 had mechanical issues two days ago at Suburban Station, and was towed to Frazier(?) by 2307. Not sure of its current status.

AEM-7 2305 was on West Trenton train 6321 this morning.

Has anyone confirmed if any of the Sprinters are in revenue service yet?
