There are some who want to re-open morrisville as a joint service NJT/SEPTA station. I personally feel that Penn valley would make a good flag stop, based purely on location along the line. The reason there is so much push for a re-activated Newtown line (junction off west Trenton line near bethayres, power provided by bethayres substation), because of the gaps and awkward routes to existing stations. That, and the overcrowding west Trenton line trains & packed parking lots at langhorne & woodbourne.
