23 and 56 have a place holder, just as they have for the last twenty years. I suspect that that's a sop to the Philadelphia government.

I was at a Montgomery County Planning Commission hearing and brought up the Newtown line. They basically said that they've given up on it.

On the other hand, they were talking about fully double-tracking the Warminster line and the Doylestown line, and re-opening Quakertown and Reading. All of the lines would have massive service expansions.

Sound like very little new stuff in the master plan other than the extension of the Norristown High-speed to King of Prussia, which could use the transit. Septa needs to buy some multi-modal trains like NJ Transit bought. They could run on diesel in the suburbs and change to electric in the tunnels. It would allow them to reopen the diesel routes that were closed when they built the tunnel.

The Station is only used by 60 people a day....and its a low level platform. So I can see why SEPTA wants to close it and others like it.

SEPTA is all Electrification or nothing...they hate diesel which is more costly to operate.

Claymont project could add 5,000 jobs

Jeff Mordock, The News Journal 8:16 p.m. EDT April 30, 2015


An artist’s rendering shows the First State Transit Center, part of the First State Crossing project proposed for Claymont.

CDC also will construct a new transit center on a 12-acre site roughly half a mile east of the existing Claymont Train Station. The transit center will include 600-foot passenger platforms, bus connections, 650 parking spaces, bike and pedestrian access and a ride dropoff area.

The First State Transit Center is expected to replace Claymont's current train station. Collins said the Delaware Department of Transportation expressed concern about the train station because of the lack of parking and that it sits on a section of curved track that could create a safety hazard.

Record riders on Broad Street Line for Broad Street Run

Emily Babay, Philly.com
Posted: Monday, May 4, 2015, 2:09 PM

If it seemed like the subway was packed before and after Sunday's Broad Street Run - it was.

SEPTA said Monday that there were 88,510 trips on the Broad Street Line on Sunday, a record for the day of the annual 10-mile race.

Sunday's trips surpassed the previous record for race day, set last year, when there were 72,678 rides on the subway line.

Papal gridlock means bring your walking shoes [map]



By Tom MacDonald

"Only 31 of our systemwide 280 rail stations will be open for service," Casey said. "This will allow us to speed up service, recycle the trains to increase our system capacity." (See list of stations below).

Casey says special regional rail passes costing $10 per day will be sold in limited quantities beginning July 15. Each pass will only be valid for specific stations.

The Market Frankford El will only have two stops operating on each end. The Frankford Transportation Center, and Girard Avenue from the Northeast, and 69th and 52nd street from the west. They also have a special $10, three-day pass but tokens and transpasses can also be used on subways, trolleys and buses.

SEPTA has lost its marbles , they should ask for neighboring agencies to provide extra rolling stock and run higher frequencies...
