Looks like it is the 913 pushing and pulling 2503, 2505, 2553, and 2406 this evening.

Rode 4571 last night from Suburban to Malvern. I ride it once a week usually and its been on time or early to Malvern most days.

Is there a plan to run more push-pull sets during the day once the new cars arrive?

Looks like at least 2 push pull sets failed today. The Great Valley Flyer died at 30th Street and the “All Day Push Pull” stopped running before rush hour.

Looks like the set has been out of commission again. Silverliner Vs covered runs yesterday and today.

Some push pull assignments are changing effective 7/21 and 7/22 due to the Arsenal/SW Corridor project. Among others, the all-day set will not be in operation.

It does not look like it is running the Elwyn to Norristown segments this morning and afternoon.

9745 is still Bombers so maybe they have put the small train idea to bed. That would be nice.
