CSX/SEPTA West Trenton Line Lower Makefield PA April 2 2008


CSX and SEPTA have been doing a little housecleaning on the West Trenton Line between Wood and Trent, and the result has been better lighting. Here Q190 approaches Stoney Hill Road.
A view of Q706 just to the south of the crossing shows a bit of the tree cutters handiwork.
The curve just north of Stoney Hill Road now looks wide open ...
even more so without a train cluttering up the view. The orange trucks in the distance are from the tree cutting contractor Asplundh at Edgewood Road.
The better lighting also extends to the SEPTA locals like Train 347. Compare the area now to shots from just a few years ago here.
