SEPTA R5 Train Catches Fire


Recommended Posts




A SEPTA Regional Rail train caught fire Wednesday morning on the tracks in West Philadelphia.


The inbound train caught fire at about 7 a.m. at 52nd Street and Lancaster Avenue, just blocks from the Overbrook station.


Authorities say the two lead trains caught fire and approximately 100 passengers were safely evacuated. No injuries were reported.


The cause of the fire is under investigation, however, initial reports indicate leaves on the tracks may have contributed to the blaze.



Damn during the strike too! Poor Silverliner II.
