SEPTA Wire Train
Title:  SEPTA Wire Train
Description:  At around 2 PM, an inbound SEPTA train ripped down the wires on Track one around Langhorne, an inverted a pantograph. The SEPTA Wire Train was dispatched out of Wayne Electric to fix this problem. Here, we see the wire train headed east up track two to Wood, where it will wait for the inbound SEPTA to cross over from 1 to 2. The Wire train will then head down to Langhorne. Anyways, on the head end of this train is SEPTA Camp Car 601, which is an ex NJT Arrow III, which is where the crew rides in, also used sort of like a cab car. We nearly missed this coming up because with the Leslie RS2M horn, we just thought it was a regular SEPTA!
