Watch as a hand picked veteran SEPTA engineer works the controls of venerable Reading Silverliner II car #9010 on its second to last revenue run to Cynwyd as part of Train 1087. Designed and Built in 1963 by the Budd Company, these cars lack such modern features as Dynamic Brakes, automatic doors and a PA system.
Also included is the soon to be retired Valley Flyover used by Main Line PRR trains and Schuylkill Branch trains alike. Now slapped with a 5mph speed restriction the bridge will soon be replaced by a direct connection to the Main Line at PAXON.
Note the cab signal dropping as the train passes the signal on the far end of the flyover bridge. This is non-cab signaled territory and the conductor must use his key in the cutout box on the other side of the cab.
