Construction Update: New photos are available to view in the slideshow below.
SEPTA is in the process of procuring new locomotives and a fleet of multi-level cars for the Regional Rail system. In order to accommodate the increased fleet size, SEPTA will perform significant renovations and expansion of the 35-year-old shop and yard facilities. The initial phase will include significant earth work and stormwater improvements at the 40-acre site to create space for additional yard tracks. Later phases will provide for additional shop buildings and vehicle maintenance equipment necessary to maintain the new operating fleet. Additional track modifications will be constructed to access the expanded shop facilities. A new vehicle washer will be constructed to accommodate the new cars. Transportation facilities will be modified for the employees that will be stationed at this facility.
