|SEPTA Doylestown Branch Lansdale PA June 16 2011|
The latest news on the transfer of Lansdale Cluster operations from CSX to New Hope and Ivyland Railroad is that the July 1 2011 date is off the table, possibly now a fall move.
So CSX will keep on doing what they have been doing for the past 12 years, starting with waking up the power each morning.
