SEPTA MU Yard Lansdale PA March 14 and 22 2009


With the coming of the Silverliner V's, the variety of SEPTA's fleet will temporarily increase as the V's enter service and the II's and III's bow out. The MU yard in Lansdale is usually full of IV's over the weekends, but occasionally the stars align and we get something interesting. On two consecutive weekends in March, you could see the faces of the current fleet ...

March 14 2009 found ex-Reading Silverliner II 9003 alongside Silverliner IV 350 and ex-Pennsylvania Silverliner III 228.

The next weekend it was ex-Pennsylvania Silverliner II 262 and Silverliner III 222 sandwiching Silverliner IV 164.
Meanwhile on the West Trenton trains, some odd pairings have popped up recently, such as this five car train with four Silverliner IV single units led by Silverliner II 252 about to split the signals on Track 1 at Stony Hill Road on March 30 2009.
A few days later, a Silverliner II is bracketed by a pair of Silverliner IV single units at Woodbourne.
