The West Chester Railroad, in conjunction with SEPTA, will be operating a special train from West Chester, PA to Lansdale, PA. The trip is also in coordination with the annual Lansdale Day festival. Equipment will be vintage Reading Blueliner coaches, double headed ALCO RS18 and C424 locomotives and SEPTA's Genset #70. All proceeds of this event will benefit the West Chester Railroad Heritage Association.

Unfortunately, I have other plans for this day, and getting there from LI would be a nightmare anyway: 1:30AM LIRR train, 3AM bus from PABT, 7:50am ar West Chester. And given an on-time arrival at West Chester, using NJT/SEPTA would get me to NYP roughly at at 2330, and LI past midnight. 24 hour railfan trip?
