Railfan Pictures of the Week - 4/11/2021
 
SEPTA West Trenton Line Philmont Station Philmont PA March 19 and 25 2021
 
It has been a year since the SEPTA push-pulls were mothballed, and they finally reappeared in revenue service in March 2021, albeit in an abreviated form.. A couple cars short of the usual pre-pandemic train, Bombardier cab car SPAX 2408 leads three coaches at Philmont Station.
ACS-64 SPAX 906 is probably grateful to be able to stretch its legs after a long nap.
Service is still not back at full capacity as the passengers haven't return in numbers, and this inbound train with Silverliner IV SPAX 450 passing what would normally be a bustling parking lot can attest to that.
Normally the stop at Philmont would allow me to get the shot at Pine Road and run down to the north end and get the away shot at Tomlinson Road.
But with limited ridership, the stop is very quick and I could only get to the north end of the platform before they were already gone. My guess was that less than a half dozen passengers disembarked at this usually busy station.
