Recording on the SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line

A new Behind-the-scenes recording trip video is available! In May of 2019, TCS visited SEPTA's 69th Street Transportation Center to record the Norristown High-Speed Line N5 car. The N5 was produced by Asea Brown Boveri (ABB Traction) for use on the interurban R100 (now Norristown) Line. Units were delivered in 1993 and continue to operate to this day.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is Philadelphia's regional public transportation network that operates bus, rapid transit, commuter rail, light rail, and electric trolleybus services for nearly 4 million people in five counties in and around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

SEPTA is currently considering an expansion of the Norristown High Speed Line to King of Prussia, PA to serve the multitude of businesses and shopping destinations there. You can learn more about the proposal and project here.
