ARCHIVES - 4/16/02

El service between 5 St and 30 St stations was suspended during the PM peak period due to police activity - most likely a suspicious package - found at the 19 St Subway-Surface station. Subway-Surface routes were reportedly on diversion, however, I haven't been able to confirm this item...

The 5500-series New Flyers are starting to hit the road. Yesterday, 5503 was seen - with bike rack installed - on the 88 in Northeast Philadelphia. From what I have heard, the 5500s at Frankford will probably be used on most - if not all - routes operating from that depot. And yes, that would include the 3, despite some tricky clearances around Front and Kensington.
