Railfan Pictures of the Week - 08/03/2008

SEPTA Main Line Lansdale PA August 1 2008


One late train made for some interesting railroading in Lansdale on Friday August 1. Seems that Train 6523 was having some problems with its pantograph at Doylestown. This caused the dispatcher to put Train 524 on the runner instead of in the MU yard ...
and the wire train up on the industrial track instead of Track 2 where it would be working.
Running about 20 minutes late, Train 6523 finally departs Lansdale.
The problem pantograph had been dropped on Silverliner IV married pair 364-365 ...
with the pantograph on Silverliner IV single unit 302 pulling down all the juice.
