Railfan Pictures of the Week - 1/24/2010

SEPTA Lansdale Station and Main Line Lansdale PA January 22 2010
After spending the last few months down at the new Rotem facility in South Philadelphia, CSX C746 brought SEPTA Silverliner III 237 up to Lansdale so it could be handed back to SEPTA. Upon its arrival at Lansdale, 237 was cut off from the hind end and left on the industrial track.
Later in the morning, SEPTA dispatched BL15 51 up from Wayne Electric Shop to pick it up ....
and bring it back into town.
Other than becoming a donor car to be used to keep other Silverliner III's alive until the Silverliner V's take over, this might have been the 237's last useful purpose.
