SEPTA Main Line and Doylestown Branch Lansdale and New Britain PA May 2011

The Philadelphia Chapter of the NRHS will be sponsoring a Farewell to the Silverliners trip on September 25 2011. More information will be forthcoming shortly.

In the meantime, a preview of the possibilities. Depending on the turnout, a two-car set may be all we need (263 and 266) ...

preferably with something unusual like the camera car, now sans SEPTA placard on one end.
A better choice for a better turnout would be one of each: a Reading Silverliner II, a Pennsylvania Silverliner II and a Pennsylvania Silverliner III, which would look just like this, except for this shot both II's are Reading (9006 and 9014), the III is 229.
How about a pure Reading set of II's (9002, 9008 and 9010)?
Although most of the running will be on the former Reading side of the system, at least one of the cars should probably be a Pennsy (9007, 212, 9004).
With hopefully a better turnout, four cars could be required (266, 252, 215, 201).
Better yet, we'll take them all.
