Hi! When the White Marsh shuttle still ran on theFort Washington Branch, did passengers have to change trains at Allen Lane, or did the Chesnut Hill train set a car out? We're there ever through trains to center city on this branch?

I checked with a friend of mine who lived in the area for many years, and in the last years a 2-car shuttle waited on the branch at Allen Lane, and when the local for CH had left, the shuttle pulled into the platform to take transfer passengers for stations to White Marsh (later Whitemarsh). If you go back far enough, there were a few through trains.
