2308 is still going strong. It ran the Newark PM express today.

Yup. I didn't mention (Probly) that I went to Bryn Mawr instead of 30th Street. There we saw 2308 and 902 (Her first day in Revenue Service) as well as 2301 a little later in the evening)

Could probably go to Narberth on the Paoli-Thorndale line to photograph them on the curve

Here is train 1565 - this train still gets an AEM7 however that could change within the next few weeks.

Or go to Villanova to get an head on shot - here is 9559

Keep in mind that on the weekdays on this run - it appears only 1565 still gets an AEM7. 9561 and now 9553 has been generally getting ACS.

Yes. When I was there only 1565 had an AEM. However, 9553 had #2308, unless I'm mistaking it for another train. Great photos by the way!

Seems like SEPTA is putting a new ACS-64 into service fast since 903 was seen in service to West Trenton not that long ago so the AEM-7s and the ALP-44 might not have much time left.
