CHANGE OF PLANS Plans to run single track operation on the R8 Fox Chase line were tabled at today's SEPTA Board Meeting, thanks in part to the efforts of Philadelphia City Councilman Brian O'Neill, whose district includes Fox Chase and parts of Northeast Philadelphia. The issue may be revisited at next month's Board Meeting. Following leafletting by DVARP volunteers, over 160 faxes and emails opposing SEPTA's plans to operate all R8 trains on the inbound track were delivered to the board.
