SEPTA Warminster Station April 13 2003

In the latest version of "SEPTA and the State of Pennsylvania play chicken", SEPTA has put 4 Regional Rail lines on the chopping block: R1 Airport, R2 Warminster, R6 Cynwyd and R8 Chestnut Hill West. The most used of these is the R2 Warminster, which every weekday morning has one run into the city using SEPTA's newest heavy rail equipment. Usually an AEM-7 (numbered 2300-2307) with a string of Bombardier cars, tomorrow's train will be powered by their lone ALP-44 (numbered 2308). SEPTA received it as part of the settlement with ABB over the problems encountered with the Route 100 Norristown High Speed Line N5 cars. As one can assume by the piles of sand along the rails, it evidently takes a bit to get this baby up and moving in the morning. The sign just north of cab car 2401 indicates the start of the Warminster Running Track and CSX's interchange with the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad a mile north.
