Railfan Pictures of the Week - 6/27/2010

SEPTA Chestnut Hill East and Neshaminy Lines June 24 and 25 2010
SEPTA commenced daylight testing of Silverliner V married pair 801 and 802 on June 24 2010. First run up from Wayne Junction was on the Chestnut Hill East Line, pausing here at Washington Lane Station.
Between regularly scheduled revenue trains, they made two runs up to Chestnut Hill East.
Then it was up SEPTA's Main Line to Jenkintown, running under restricted speed due to cab signaling issues.
The dispatcher put them on the northbound layoff siding at Jenkintown before releasing them back south to Wayne Junction for the end of Day One.
On Day Two, it was up to Neshaminy Falls for a pair of runs with West Trenton revenue trains running around them from Wood to Nesh.
Last run of the day at Philmont, heading back home.
