Edited to add:
I did some digging. The train ran into issues early in the day and Silverliners were substituted for the run cycle prior to 3420. However, the issues must have been resolved, and the push-pull swapped back into the rotation in time for train 4571 out of Center City.
I have begun to wonder if SEPTA is doing this completely wrong by pairing it to through runs instead of running it on runs that terminate at one side of Center City or another. With several Paoli Thorndale Line trains terminating at Suburban right now wouldn’t make more sense to just run this set back and forth on that line? You could probably get 6 round trips a day if done right including some peak runs.
