It is being reported in various newsgroups that SEPTA is planning to initiate trolley service on the 15/Girard Av line starting in June. Although there are only a handful of the 18 PCC-II cars required to run the line presently available at Elmwood, SEPTA plans to run both available PCC-II cars and the Kawasaki subway-surface cars on the 15 starting this summer. A surplus of available K-Cars due to the reduced requirements of the summer schedule will make rail service on the 15 a reality. Testing and operator training along the 15 will start as early as next week in order to work out remaining bugs along the line.
