SEPTA Main Line Lansdale PA August 25 2012

With the Lansdale Founder's Day Special on its way, a crowd of expectant railfans and others gathers at the station even while normal SEPTA operations continue as a Silverliner V train heads to Doylestown (to the right). As their contribution to the event, SEPTA brought up a Silverliner V married pair and parked it on the Bethlehem Industrial Track at the station (to the left) and opened the cars for tours throughout the day.

Right behind the revenue train and running a little behind schedule, the special smokes it up as it enters Dale Interlocking.
A view of the engineer's side of 5342 reveals that it has received lettering.
GP30 2198, the leader on the Warminster Line, brings up the rear as they pull into the station.
The first order of business at Lansdale was to shift 5342 over to the BIT and cut it off behind the Silverliner V's as part of the equipment display ...
and then recouple the train to 2198 for the trio of excursion runs up to Souderton and back.
