SUPER SATURDAY STREETCAR SPECIAL XXVII

SOLD OUT!!!!

February 1, 2020, 10:00am-3:00pm

Departs from 69th Street Terminal, Upper Darby, Pa.


Join the Wilmington Chapter NRHS for our annual pre-Super Bowl trip. For the second time in 27 years, we will venture out onto SEPTA's Red Arrow Division and for the first time we'll be using the Norristown High Speed Line.


Our trip will depart SEPTA's 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby, Pa., at 10:00 and head out onto Route 100 (Norristown High Speed Line) for the ride to Norristown and return with photo stops along the way. At approximately 12:15 we'll return to 69th Street and, following a short break, head out onto Routes 101 and 102 (Media and Sharon Hill streetcar lines), once again with photo stops. 


There are two bonus trips as part of the day (see below). Tickets are $60 each (Wilmington Chapter members in 2019 can get tickets for $50). Use the link below to pay by credit card.

This event is SOLD OUT.
Please email steve@railroadphotographer.com for any cancellations.

BONUS EVENTS:

1)  Prior to our trip there will be a tour of SEPTA's 69th Street Shop that services Routes 101/102 and the Market-Frankford Subway-Elevated. This tour will leave from 69th Street Terminal at 8:45am for the short walk over to the shop. This tour is included in your ticket. A yellow safety vest is required if you want to go on the shop tour.


2) Approximately 20 minutes after our charter returns to 69th Street (sometime after 3:00) we will do a group ride on the Market-Frankford Subway-Elevated for the entire length to the Frankford TransportationCenter and return. This will be on a regular service train and will not involve photo stops, although we can recommend where to detrain for anyone who wants to get skyline shots during our return. We are working on including this as part of your ticket, but be prepared to pay the SEPTA fare of $2.50.
