Who says you need a sleigh to travel to a winter wonderland? Several SEPTA trolleys and a Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) train are decked out in their holiday finest – tinsel, lights, bows and bells – to put commuters in the seasonal spirit.
Operators Gary Mason, Fred Garmon, Dave Musgrave and Deina McLaughlin and Denita Birton (who are also sisters) used hundreds of lights, yards of garland and tons of ornaments, all to make the season brighter for their passengers.
The festive train and trolleys can be found on the following routes:
- PCC Trolley #2325, operating on Route 15
- Trolley #9103, operating on Route 10
- Trolleys #9039 and #9080, operating on the Routes 11, 13, 34 or 36
- Trolley #138 on Routes 101 and 102 (Media/Sharon Hill Line)
- NHSL Car #101
If you’re on Santa’s nice list this year, you just might catch a “SEPTA Seasonal Special” on your ride. Fans of SEPTA’s Facebook page, will also be able to view photos of the decorated trolleys and NHSL car and vote for their favorite “gift-wrapped” vehicle.
