So I was recently reading about a possible new station in Atglen (border of Chester County) and extension of Paoli/Thorndale line to Parkesburg/Atglen. I know R5 used to run to Parkesburg, but is there any information that you guys might have regarding this? Any chance of SEPTA coming back to our parts?

Yes the are looking at that and it would be very easy , the stations at Coatesville and Parkersburg are being upgraded and there's some extra underused tracks.

Is it likely to happen? If so, when?

I'm probably going to have to say sometime in the 2020s , Septa is slowing upgrading its Urban Network and prepping for future expansions.

Crossover problems, apparently...Apparently when SEPTA ended at Parkesburg (late '80s?) they had to go all the way to Lancaster to turn the equipment...

...Although IMO SEPTA could also treat operations beyond the next crossover down (THORN, I believe) as essentially single-track-plus--that is, essentially reversing the equipment in place and crossing over at THORN interlocking.

The area around Millbourne station's not in Philadelphia but rather in Upper Darby. To the north and east is Cobbs Creek--and Cobbs Creek is both a major park in the city's park system and the city border.

I'm so unfamiliar with Philadelphia as a hub let alone its mass of environs ... namesake, I guess

Minutes 14-18 are around Philadelphia International Airport. When watching this video, I get this feeling that the driver sees himself as a budding Grand Prix driver.
