The 8 car consist runs every weekday as 9784, the 9 car deadhead also runs everyday, 2 trains combine at Trenton and turn as a 9car train back to Philadelphia, both trains are evening trains

I'd take Limited-Clear's word for it

The four cars on train 328 this morning were married pairs 111-112 and 109-110. It's too bad they weren't put together in sequence. On a more bizarre note, 109 and 111 were the lead cars on two recent West Trenton-bound trains that were involved in incidents. 109 led the train that struck and killed someone walking on the track on April 7. 111 led the train that struck an SUV left on the track on a Friday not too long ago.

Does anyone know what time the push-pull trains run on the Trenton Line ...I've never rode SEPTA's and I'd like to ride them on the Trenton Line.

Train 328 this morning, 9/9/14, was led by a reversed married pair. 158 was in the lead. Usually, the odd-numbered car, which would have been 157, is on the Reading side. The rear two cars were oriented correctly. I believe they were 121 and 122.

A lot of IVs have weak horns. 158's had a strange weak sound I haven't heard on other cars. With the exception of Elwyn, most Pennsylvania side lines don't have many grade crossings. Thus, this one, if it usually points in the Pennsylvania direction, doesn't have that many routine horn blows. Ironically, unless there was an equipment change along the route, it led inbound from Elwyn on 328 this morning before hitting the 11 grade crossings on the West Trenton line.
