I was on 6325 earlier this week and it was the Bombers...no MARC cars. Does anyone know if they’re running? I’ve been keeping an eye out for them but I haven’t seen them.
They won't actually be on that round trip until the new picks start on September 30th at least.

Re: Septa push pull overview

Any word on when the MARC cars will enter service? Unofficially, next week. Most likely a couple/few weeks. No concrete dates from people I have spoken to. I am curious if they will be used for rush hour runs or to bring back the "all day" push pull set. I was told by a reliable source that they ar...

Re: Septa push pull overview

Partial heads up: some changes to the push-pull assignments coming effective 9/29 (to start Monday 9/30) The two Trenton Line push-pull sets (9745/9724 and 9728 plus its corresponding runs) will be expanded to 8-car sets. The West Trenton Line push-pull set (6374/6325) will get the MARC coaches. Tha...

Is SEPTA still expecting delivery of the first multi level coach in September 2020?
Delayed a few months by mutual agreement between SEPTA and CRRC due to the welding issues mentioned above.

Re: Septa push pull overview

One round trip in the peak on the Neshaminy Line. Also, unrelated, but for those of you playing at home, 2407 has been outshopped, which means 4/10 control cars have been "overhauled." Hopefully all the logos got properly applied on 2407 (2405 is missing both right-side logos, only has striping). R...

Re: Septa push pull overview

Based on observations by myself and others today, here are the push-pull runs for the current schedule (August 5th). Seven sets of equipment are required (six 6-car sets, and I think one 5-car set, plus 3 spare cars and 1 cab car out for interior rehab (2407). MARC cars on the property are not in se...

Re: Septa push pull overview

There was an afternoon Warminster run that returned through Jenkintown around 5:35. Not sure about the morning train. The "All Day" Push Pull set runs from Warminster to Center City to Thorndale as 4571 passing Jenkintown around that time. The "all day" push pull set has been operating with MU's fo...

Re: Septa push pull overview

CNJ: Which push-pull equipment set goes someplace north of Jenkintown in the morning and then returns south during the afternoon for the PM rush hour? In my travels I spotted this train twice at JKT in one day - where do they store this set for the day? I remember the Jenkintown Layoff was one plac...

Re: Septa push pull overview

There are some interesting changes to the August 5 schedules. Is the all day set back in the rotation along with the MARC cars? From what I've heard from a friend who has heard part of the story, everything goes back to the way it was prior to the Southwest Connection work, with the following chang...

Re: Septa push pull overview

How many passengers do the MARC cars hold and would they be used as trailers or cab cars? Pretty much the same as the SEPTA cars, 120 to 131 depending on if cab or trailer coach. They will be used as trailers only, mainly due to different ACSES display units (if they are cabs that even got equipped...

Re: Septa push pull overview

The push-pulls are back on the R7 Trenton. 1703 and 9745 are push-pulls. So are 9724 (which turns from 9745 after spending the night at Trenton) and 9728 (turns off 1703, which in turn comes off 1502). Assignments adjusted due to the Southwest Connection project at Arsenal, so this may only be for ...
