LC: I will also mention that AEM7 2303 was the locomotive (W end-pulling) of the Friday afternoon 6/28 run of the GVF...
I noticed that this equipment was stored during the day at the Jenkintown Layoff...Since I did not ride the West Trenton
line I was not able to see which cars that this set had until it got Downtown...

I also remember looking at the two P/P trainsets stored on the O track at Fern Rock as I passed by to determine if
2512 was among the cars there...I rode the Lansdale/Doylestown Line during that afternoon...

This could be the start of a "Tracking Car 2512" topic but I feel that occasional sightings posted here in Consists
should be enough...

Bomber car 2512 is in Robert yard this weekend, it is in place to do the deadhead to Elwyn, back with 9340, they do a shift in the daytime to Powelton and if nothing changes it will be on 6378 tomorrow night, that puts it on 6325 on Tuesday morning.

Of course all subject to change

Married pair 451/452 are 2nd and 3rd on a train sitting in Powelton yard, the yard track closest to the road that overlooks the yard (31st St?), these are the new camera cars that took over from 266

On Tuesday, July 16, train 330, which I observed from a distance, was composed of Silverliner V cars, one of which was wrapped in an ad with a yellow color scheme.

I think that's the Snapple car. It was awful, especially inside.

Now that you mention that Snapple car I might have mistakened it as a beer ad because I only saw the glass bottle but the car was yellowish

I'd rather have the Nantucket guys wrap a car. I might end up with a seat on Steamboat Wharf.

I can suffer the torment of windows I can hardly see out of, garish colors inside and all the advertising if it brings Septa some money they desperately need for their capital projects etc

Yes indeed. But I tend to ride at the Steamboat Wharf end of the car.
