I would guess they stopped because on the ones I rode on patronage was very low. They also had no bathrooms on the New Hope train and nothing at the station or on SEPTA trains so that made it pretty tough for the older generation that patronizes these trips.

Ride from Center City or elsewhere, change at Warminster and straight to New Hope.WashingtonPark wrote: ↑Wed Nov 15, 2023 11:41 amIn the summer of 1976 the New Hope Railroad actually ran a commuter train to Warminster in the morning and afternoon to connect with Septa. The train to Warminster in the morning and the one to New Hope in the afternoon would work the freight so it was actually a mixed train. This continued for a very short time.Though tickets were sold. All 3 of the regular commuters asked that the subsidy be continued.
