Railfan Pictures of the Day - 07/31/2008

SEPTA Lansdale MU Yard and Main Line Lansdale PA July 28 2008
With the imminent arrival of the Silverliner V mockup, growing attention will invariably fall on the cars slated for replacement, the venerable Silverliner II's and III's. Here four of the II's joined a lone III, led by ex-Reading Company Class REB-13 Silverliner II 9010, coming in on Train 524 and laying over in the yard until the evening rush.
Train 6535 with St. Louis Car Company product Silverliner III 233 on the point passes RL1A 60 on the wire train at Hancock Street.
The cars of the morning's Train 524 are split to make two trains for the evening runs. Here as Train 555, Silverliner II's 9010 and ex-PRR 217 were joined by Silverliner III 221, which features a more austere SEPTA logo on its cab end as compared to its sister 233 above.
The last two cars of Train 524, consisting of Silverliner II 9009 and ...
ex-Pennsylvania Railroad 213, made up the second train, Train 4253.
