SEPTA Warminster Regional Rail Service Resumes After Long Delay

By Al Novack

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Service resumed on SEPTA’s Warminster Regional Rail line after a nearly three-hour long suspension, Tuesday morning.

Delays were also reported on the Lansdale/Doylestown and West Trenton lines.  Throughout the morning, those delays were up to 40 minutes long.

Service on the Warminster line was suspended around 5:30, Tuesday morning. It resumed at about 8:30 a.m. The #419 train, regularly scheduled to depart Warminster Station at 8:40 a.m., was the first train to depart, following the suspension.

The delays and suspensions were attributed to switching problems.

Stay tuned to KYW Newsradio, CBS 3 and for updates.

    This delay was the result of the East Penn Railway passing a stop signal without permission. After passing this stop signal, the East Penn train damaged a power operated switch and stopped short of crashing head on into a SEPTA work train by only 80 feet. The East Penn purchased the right to operated freight trains out of Lansdale last year from CSX. This was a cost saving move by CSX and now low paid and obviously reckless and unqualified East Penn employees are endangering the public along the Lansdale and Warminster lines.
