Blueliner?

Post by StrasburgRailroadFan » Wed Aug 01, 2018 6:13 pm

Now, I have been going to Philadelphia many times by septa, and recently I have noticed something. There is an old electric MU that looks a bit like a blueliner in the septa yard between the stations wayne junction and north broad. Could someone tell me possibly why it is there? Next time I am on SEPTA I will try to get a picture. (or maybe I already have one deep in my files of train photos either way I'll get them posted.)
Next stop, East Strasburg!

It is the 9135 and is or was used for storage. The car has been there for around 25 years or so and was painted once
within that time frame.
His train? It's MY train! I know what I'm doing, do you?

9130 to be correct.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

The headlight says 9135, employees who placed it say it's 9135, survey says...

It's also landlocked as the switch to the siding was removed years ago.
