SEPTA Warminster Line Hatboro Station Hatboro PA May 11 2012

SEPTA has been busy replacing the catenary wires all over the system, and currently is working on the north end of the Warminster Branch. Here the wire train is stopped just north of Hatboro Station at what was formerly the original end of electrification in 1931 until the extension of wires to Warminster in 1974.

Included in the consist was gondola SPAX 1103, which is used to collect the old wire.
The catenary tower car SPAX 2116

The wire train pauses at Hatboro Station before creeping south as personnel on the catenary tower car check over the new wire they are installing.
