With many people off from work and Septa running an enhanced weekend schedule because of the coronavirus case, it's safe to say that the push pull trains aren't running. I wanted to make a trip down to the Philadelphia area to photograph them but that will have to wait indefinately.

While the push-pull fleets have been idle, the overhaul work has not: 2402 and 2406 have been released with their new makeovers over the last few months. Only three cab cars remain to complete the 45-car project, which will drag into its 7th year in 2021: the 2403, 2404, and 2409 are the last three standing.

2409 is the cab car currently in the shop getting its makeover.

Also for those who may have missed it, the MARC set was returned home to Maryland at some point in July or August.
