The PCC on the Route 15, can go. Never rode that one before. Don't care to ever. I mean, i might, just for the experience just to see what the interior is like but besides, isn't that a PCC next to the 13th Street Station on the MFL? Below the Septa customer service office?
Anyway, the Kawasaki cars have been the product of my Septa fandom since my early childhood. To be fair, I understand their old age and Septa wanting to replace them for that reason. I was sad enough to see the rollsigns replaced by digital signs. When i first heard long ago about the new trolley proposal, at first i thought "well why not build NEW Kawasaki cars with same exterior design but with new features, like monitor display screens (like inside the Silverliner 5s), softer seating, and maybe wheelchair-accessibility?
but then again, according to the new article, this change affects the 10, 11, 13, 15, 34, and 36 trolley routes... and i'm understanding this to mean the double-faced Kawasaki cars will remain in service? Am I understanding that right?
The thing about it is, I always liked how the double-faced and single-faced K-cars had similar
designs but with some major differences. I've always been a fan of that!
For one thing, i love the new buses they got in service. I just wish they're were more of them so that's one thing. Hopefully these new trolleys Septa is proposing will be anything like the trolleys on the Norristown High Speed Line. I freaking LOVE the Norristown High Speed Line!
Speaking of the display at Septa customer service, if the K-cars really are going, i hope Septa will at the very least put one of their old K-cars on display down there, a double-face and a single-face each... WITH the rollsigns on the driver's seats and the side windows, with this paintjob, and we're allowed to just sit and chill on the trolley at the passenger or driver seats (without the functional controls of course lol).

I will have felt like i've gotten a piece of my childhood back because that'd be so nostalgic.
