SEPTA Doylestown Station Doylestown PA February 2 2011
On February 2 2011 SEPTA sent the wire train up to Doylestown Station to mend some problem wire at the end of the line. The ongoing work to add a new track at the station took a back seat to this and the nasty ice storm that blew through the area overnight.
Power for the train was the genset SPAX 70 which evidently is trustworthy enough to go out alone, a far cry from its first wire train adventure.
Wire spool car SPAX 2203 was also along for the ride ....
as was the new tower car SPAX 2116 replacing SPAX 2204
On the tail end was camp car 601. Compared to the wire train of old, only 2203 remains.
