Railfan Pictures of the Week - 03/03/2013

SEPTA Lansdale Yard and Main Line Lansdale PA February 24 and March 2 2013
SEPTA has been marketing its newest railcars to marketing departments in big and little ways. First the Dietz & Watson ads, then the Bike Race ads, the Bailey's ads, the DVRPC ads, and right now you can find ads for Tropicana on a few Silverliner V singles like SPAX 720.
Recently Villanova University entered the mix with the same slogan in two different formats. Married pair SPAX 835 and 836 both wear full center wraps on both sides.
Single Silverliner SPAX 737 is a little less "in your face" with a small center wrap on one side ...
and nothing on the other.
Have yet to confirm, but assuming that the small wrap on SPAX 856 and nothing on this side of the other half of its married pair means that the ad is on the other side of the trailing unit, similar in format to the DVRPC ads on married pairs.
