How about "beat" little toasters?

While it's more accurate it loses it's obscure reference to one of my favorite movies as a child https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brave_Little_Toaster

2308 died on 6325 yesterday at Langhorne. Diesel 52 rescued and towed it to Frazer for repairs.

This is semi related, what is the status of the Comet I cars? Last I saw they were in storage at Overbrook but I haven't seen them in ages.

I've seen them recently which makes me think they are now in storage behind the Wayne Junction shops.

Are they ever going to be used again? They would honestly come in handy right about now.

The Comet cars trucks were used as shop trucks for the SL-V truck nightmare,so,those cars are now useless. :(

If it's needed to be out of service all week, that may explain why the West Trenton line only had one push pull this week, instead of the customary two they've had for the past several months. I figured this was due to a redistribution after the recent schedule change.

As least for last week, Train 9547 has run with Push-Pull equipment, and Train 6321 has run with MUs.
2308 is back in service, or at least was on Friday.

2308 went to West Trenton tonight. The other express was MU equipment.

Does the 5:05 Paoli Express usually operate PP? We have 2303 right now.

2308 was on track 0 @ Suburban with a mechanic in the cab around 5:45pm on Thursday 5/18. Looks like they were testing something, as they kept turning the lights on and off.

Has SEPTA started boarding peak trains on 0? I don't think I've boarded a push pull on that track in maybe 10 years, and that was a day when there was an early snowstorm commute.

Cynwyd trains originate and end on 0.

Cynwyds use track 5 at Suburban, when the Vs went down a Peak Trenton was starting on the 0, these days it is if a train gets protected out of Suburban for points south, and that's only if there isn't anything available on 5,6 or 7
