NS will not Allow catenary.
Why not? The Trenton Sub on CSX handles all traffic just fine.

And you’re right. SEPTA isn’t buying any ALPs. Phoenixville is leading them :)

Re: Regional rail to Pottstown

https://patch.com/pennsylvania/phoenixville/phoenixville-sends-letter-septa-approving-passenger-rail Its not discussed, but it sounds like they are attempting to get Norfolk Southern to play ball by moving a station to a straight stretch of track. Not sure of anything short of adding a third track ...

Re: cost of padding rail schedules

Having just gotten home from London this past week, I think every single person at Septa who makes scheduling decisions should take a trip abroad and get on their transit systems. Not only are they clean, they're on time. Period. Our train was delayed just a couple of minutes because they were doin...

Donate to 1361!

Hey all, I was just informed that PRR K4s 1361 now has a donations page set up! I know I’d love to see a K4 run again, especially considering that there isn’t any (authentic) PRR steam running right now. https://www.railroadcity.com/portfolio-items/the-journey-of-k-4-1361/?utm_source=share&utm_mediu...

Wawa also isn't a municipality. It's an unincorporated section of Middletown Twp.
Pardon me, I was confusing Wawa, USA with Wawa, Canada :)

Re: SEPTA Rebuilding for the Future Updates

The good news: the Wawa Extension pushes forward, and they expect to start construction on the station before the end of the year. The bad news: it’s no longer called Wawa. It’s now “Middletown.” Oh well. http://septa.org/rebuilding/pdf/elwyn-wawa-open-house-08-2019.pdf Probably because "Wawa" is a...

Re: SEPTA Rebuilding for the Future Updates

The bad news: it’s no longer called Wawa. It’s now “Middletown.” Oh well. Maybe they were concerned about confusion with the food store chain (even though that's where the company started)? :P But seriously, it would be a great opportunity for co-branding. No need to rename a station (AT&T, wait, N...

When CTA trains stall at a junction...

Hello all, I was just on a Red Line train that stalled at a crossover, and that jogged my memory: isn’t there some video somewhere of a guy moving a stalled CTA train with along pole? I believe it was a Green Line train somewhere on the loop. Forgive me if I’m breaking any rules, I’ve never posted i...

Re: New stations built after Amtrak started

Technically you could count Philadelphia International, as Amtrak stopped there albeit for a brief period in the 80s/90s
