Regional Rail Lines
Septa says it needs $6.5 billion over the next ten years to improve crumbling railroad bridges, outdated rail cars, and substations that are 80 years old.
SEPTA says it has set a new ridership record on its regional rail lines.
SEPTA is starting track and signal improvement work and it’s going to affect passengers on the Manayunk/Norristown regional rail lines for three of the four weekends in February.
Riders on SEPTA’s Silverliner V regional rail cars may wonder why two perfectly good seats at the front of the new cars are roped off with yellow tape.
Hurricane Irene caused the cancellation of a lot of flights and put the brakes on a lot of trains. Fortunately, most rail services are expected to resume Tuesday morning.
