As a friendly reminder to those following the SEPTA push-pull sets, they all have a 4-day weekend and will resume their regular assignments on Monday.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Is that always the case? 2 years ago I rode the Great Valley Flyer and was one of 5 passengers in the control car on Friday morning.

That's usually the norm... emphasis on "usually". Most consists run shortened on the Friday simply because many people take the day off.
