Railfan Pictures of the Day - 11/06/2008

SEPTA Radnor, 69th Street and City Hall Stations October 31 2008
After seeing the crowds on the R6 Norristown Line in Conshohocken, Dan Miller and entourage decided to take their chances at Radnor Station on the Route 100 Norristown High Speed Line. Some fans gave up and went home, taking a dangerous route along the right of way as this double-headed express train sped by.
Fortunately for Dan and company, the next train did stop and they were on their way.
Of course this was a more indirect route, dropping them off at 69th Street Station in Upper Darby where they could catch the Market-Frankford Line into Center City, accompanied by a few other people.
Rarely have people been so happy to be packed into a tin can like sardines.
At City Hall Station, it was just follow the leader time as the masses poured onto the streets above.
