Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/15/2020
 
SEPTA Doylestown Branch Fortuna, Colmar, Link Belt, 9th Street and Lansdale Stations Lansdale, Hatfield and Colmar PA November 4 and 5 2020
 
I live close enough to hear the horns on the south end of the Doylestown Branch, so on this night, having heard them at Lansdale, had just enough time to catch SEPTA Wash 1 on its almost nightly trip up the line. First captured at Fortuna ...
then at Colmar as the crew takes a quick break at the local Wawa ...
then on to Link Belt. You can see how the lighting varies from station to station, with older ones getting sodium vapor and newer ones LED.
After Link Belt, the dispatcher sent them onto the siding to wait to follow a northbound, allowing for a long exposure shot at County.
On the return trip, through the newest station on the SEPTA Regional Rail system, 9th Street, ...
and finally back onto the main line at Lansdale.
