Our tour starts with PCC 2728 pausing at theYeadon Loop on SEPTA's Route 13, where regular-service Kawasaki car 9022 is also waiting.
Next, 2728 pauses at the Mount Moriah Cemetery on Kingsessing Street, still on Route 13.
The Center City tunnel runs from the 40th Street portal to City Hall at 15th Street. The chartered PCC is stopped at the 22nd Street station.
Back on the surface again, the 2728 is westbound on Girard Avenue on the Schuylkill River Bridge as Amtrak AEM7 905 leads an eastbound Amtrak train on the parallel ex-Pennsylvania Railroad viaduct. This is SEPTA's Route 15, which is normally operated by buses, but the wire and rail are maintained for charters.
Our next stop is the Malvern Loop on SEPTA's Route 10. Kawasaki car 9080 also occupies the loop.
The trip finishes on SEPTA's Route 36 down the median of Island Avenue near Philadelphia International Airport. Kawasaki car 9069 heading north meets PCC 2728 heading south.
