It's that time of the year again. SEPTA's Regional Rail timetables will be changing on Monday. This also marks a rare occasion when SEPTA actually coordinated its timetable change with Amtrak. The highlights involve mostly minor time adjustments on the R5 Paoli/Thorndale line and the R7 Chestnut Hill East line, and mid-day adjustments on both R3 branches - Media/Elwyn and West Trenton - to accomodate catenary maintenance projects on both branches. There are also other timetable changes "to accommodate for increased ridership at various stations and better separation between departing trains." (Translation: we're padding the schedules.)
A full analysis of the timetable changes will be posted within the next few days.
