It's quite embarrassing how old fashion SEPTA is when it comes to tickets and passes.

The token system may be old-fashioned, but I believe it's the only one that cannot be hacked by PRC or IRI (just yet).

Can a New Train Station Transform Paoli?


A rendering of the new Paoli Intermodal Transportation Center//Photo courtesy of Sowinski Sullivan Architects.

The reality is that many people board in Paoli. The Amtrak-owned station serves about 1,300 passengers daily. Dating back to 1893, its Victorian-style depot was replaced in 60 years later—and hasn’t been significantly altered since. In 2013, Paoli served 175,300 Amtrak riders and 738,000 SEPTA passengers—the most riders in any station in the western suburbs. It’s also one of the busiest in the metropolitan area and in the state. It’s so bustling that the building and parking facilities can no longer accommodate the volume. Paoli merchants remain frustrated by commuters consuming the limited downtown spaces, while buses and shuttles squeeze into cramped parking lots adjacent to the station.

I believe that they are referring to delaying the start of construction for 35 years.

But it will take a long time regardless because

A) It is VERY techinically complex (cramped space of active tracks).

B) They seem to be going for a phased approach due to not having the money for all at once.

Now please stop. I've asked you before to stop mocking people in unfortunate situations.

Its not nice.

Anyway.

SEPTA sometimes stores several consists on the siding above Jenkintown (where some of the early Metroliner pictures were taken) on Sundays in preparation for the morning rush. These consists are between two and six cars long.

This week, there is only one consist, but its eight cars long-four pairs of Silverliner IVs.

To put this in perspective, the vast majority of MU trains top out at six cars. The Bombardier push-pulls (the SEPTA staff calls them "bombers") are six or seven cars usually, and a seven car MU train may occasionally substitute for one. Eight cars is basically unheard of for a very long time.
