Fox Chase service has been canceled YET again! At this rate, it'll be seeing as much action as the line does to Newtown within a year...
R8 Fox Chase Line service is suspended due to report of a gas leak at/near Lawndale Station.

UPDATE: Regional Rails are stretched beyond capacity. All RR riders are urged to find "Alternate Means of Transportation"

I suggest finding a bus to anywhere downtown and start walking.

It seems a complete mess out there right now:

Regional Rail riders are urged to find alternate service (buses, Rt100, Broad Street, Market-Frankford), alt service is printed in Rail Schedules.

I know there are crowds, but 4119 is 73 minutes late?

I'm guessing it got annulled south of Center City. I sometimes take that train, and was following it on Trainview from the safety of my office (I was on 0115 this morning--good thing I went earlier than usual, because 0115 was only 4 minutes late and the deluge came right after that.

Very odd afternoon rush too. I got to 30th Street about 5:50, intending to avoid Suburban, and I ended up on a very late 582. First time I've ever seen more passengers on at Fern Rock than Suburban. In the meantime, we had police assistance (quite a show of force) to remove a very disorderly passenger and her companions from the train at Market East. I actually had my three-seater to myself all the way to Fern Rock, after which it was SRO.

A train was idle on the Southbound track at Jenkintown this morning around 7:20 and It looked as if it had no power. #4007 came through Jenkintown and was routed around the train, switching to the "right" track at South Jenkin. Trains were delayed ~10 minutes coming off the R3 branch, and a few trains coming up the branch were also delayed ~10 minutes.

Delays tonight for CHE trains.

Something you don't see every day on TrainView..

Anyone know what happened to 4119 (Warminster-Airport) today?
It was showing 1 min late on Train View up until about 8:56, then it was showing 16 late, and indeed reached Glenside 16 min late.

The 7:49 0219 was late getting off the branch. We were running 20 late and ditched 2 cars at Warminster, I was on it and it was a mess, it took 20 just to leave Warminster. I guess that held 4119's previous outbound run got held up due to 0219

Ah, I noticed 0219 was behind as well. That makes a lot of sense now, though it doesn't explain Trainview showing it on time until almost to Glenside (it did the same thing last week).

So now I have another thing to check when I look at Trainview before leaving the house. If 4208 was late, it's probably gonna be late turning to 4119. If 4208 is arrived and off the board, then I can check on 0219.
