Because they can.
At least they are restoring service to Wawa:

With dual-mode electric / diesel locomotives like NJT has, the center city tunnel is no longer a hindrance.
Seeing the trail taking over North of Quakertown is sickening to me. Sure, I like trails and all, but that could be a very important transportation corridor to the Lehigh Valley again.
Service to Reading again would be nice, but NS apparently has no room for passenger trains.
