SEPTA Main, Neshaminy and Doylestown Lines and Stony Creek Branch July and August 2010
July 24 was one of the hottest days of the year, and a Saturday to boot, but SEPTA C&S was out on the Doylestown Branch at Seventh Street upgrading the crossing as the installation of cab signalling progresses along the branch.
July 26 and North Wales Station is still bare brick and beautiful, but SEPTA promises by the end of the month it will have a new coat of paint in the shade of cream favored by the former owner, the Reading Company, circa 1900.
July 27 and down on the Neshaminy Line, Langhorne Station is getting an upgrade courtesy of the federal stimulus package.
July 29 and B738 heads down the Stony Creek Branch, passing over the Sumneytown Pike Bridge ....
and returns on August 3. The bridge replacement is scheduled for early September with the branch out of service all month.
Meanwhile work continues on the new siding between School House Road and County Line Road on the Doylestown Branch, scheduled completion early 2011.
