Railfan Pictures of the Week - 05/06/2018
SEPTA's newest engines, Siemens ACS-64's aka SEPTA Sprinters, are still in testing mode even as more are being delivered.
April 21 2018 SEPTA sends a training train up to Lansdale on a Saturday, coming off the Industrial Track at the station.
April 26 2018 The total on the property is now eight as Extra 80 picks up SPAX 906, 907 and 908, here at Langhorne.
April 28 2018 You know those photos you see of a train in a sparse but picturesque landscape ... well, this ain't that. A little busy, eh?
To better simulate the weight of a fully loaded train, they have added SPAX 902 to the consist of two coaches and a cab car..
May 2 2018 The training train went up to CP Wood and then back into town.
The training train pauses on the bridge over the Neshaminy Creek while waiting for a northbound revenue.
SEPTA was single tracking between Neshaminy and Jenkintown due to the wire train, so the training train had to cross over at Neshaminy, then shoved back north of the station on Track 2 before continuing testing and training.
May 5 2018 A couple more training runs, back to 901 solo, here heading north along Line Street in Lansdale.
Heading back into town making simulated station stops like here at North Wales.
