Not to my knowledge.

No. I saw 912 pushing a West Trenton train through 30th Street about a month ago.

And to add to the above reply, the West Trenton push-pull set was in its usual spot bedded down for the weekend Friday night.

I was in Overbrook yesterday. I saw Train #9531 was a Silverliner IV set but 9551 was a push pull set. I know that for the past few months, 9531 typically has been a push pull set. I ended up in W. Trenton too and saw 6336 using it’s push pull set. I guess that since it’s the week leading to Memorial Day, Septa isn’t using all the push pull sets on the trains that they are normally assigned to.

Probably just an equipment or crew issue, since Monday is the only day they wouldn't be running them for the holiday. The Trenton set went out as normal yesterday, so that's 3 out of 4.

Yes, I saw the push pull set laying over in Trenton yesterday. It was great photographing the push pull sets yesterday. A Sprinter with four Comets has good acceleration, pretty close to that of an MU.

Which line was that on? Also was it half full?

By its number, 9551 would be Roberts Yard to Malvern or Thorndale.

Correct. Roberts to Malvern. Departs Suburban at 410pm. I planned my day around taking it to see how the 4 car push pull set was handling a local run.

If I had to guess it was about half full leaving 30th Street.

9551 operated with 5 Silverliner Vs again today.

All MU Railroad again, until further notice

Looks like the Push Pulls has been temporarily sidelined again.
