Train 9724 is heading from Trenton to Temple with AEM-7 2301 pulling. This is interesting because the motors are usually pushing this train. Must have been wyed since cab car 2403 is at the rear.
Lines Frequented: SEPTA Trenton Line, West Trenton Line, Warminster Line; NJT Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line; Amtrak Northeast Corridor (PHL-NYP).

Just saw a sprinter on the Manayunk/Norristown line with a couple of cars. Couldn’t catch the number as I was on the other bank of the river, but if anyone knows anything about why it’s there off peak I would be happy to hear

Most likely testing or training runs.

Went down to Elm st with what little I had of my break left and found that they’re testing 905.

Unless my eyes should deceive me, as my Trenton train passed over the SEPTA main, I saw a push pull consist from either Lansdale or West Trenton with double header ACS-64s

You very well may have. There are still several Sprinters going through acceptance testing.

It seems the Great Valley Flyer was double headed by AEMs today:

It came inbound with the 2308, the 2306 was added at Wayne Electric as it was needed back at Frazer.

Push-pull set including a Sprinter made a round trip to (I assume) Warminster midday today, towed by an end-cab diesel. Didn’t catch any numbers, since I only saw it from a distance/from the car. It was through Jenkintown around noon and inbound through Willow Grove at 1:15. If it was a qualifying run, seems odd that it would have had diesel power. Any guesses?
