I'd rather spend $25 going to Philly then blow it at a casino. (I bought a GLI D4500 model for $10 before leaving on the 551 back to AC and the NJT tickets were $15)

What time were you in Center City? I was there too. Snapping away. :septa: I saw someone in the Trolley with a black coat. Maybe that was you.

I was near the trolley around 1:45 according to the EXIF data on the pic of it. I left on the 2:50 (NJT) 551 to Atlantic City. I wasn't in the trolley.

adding time for the trolley

Nice pics!!!!!

 

Nice, clear and crisp pix... And that is a worth it trip, B)!

 

Thanks, I was looking for a Silverliner II or III, but saw none. I also wanted a SEPTA Flx but none were to be found so I settled on a Greyhound D4500 which I was also after.

LOL, thanks.

 

Food... food.... food....

Thanks, one of the MTA Bus Orion Vs had or has a half-wrap for Snickers on it.

SEPTA doesn't have any Flxibles... the closest buses they have to a Flxible is an Eldorado (same shape)

According to a post on Buschat, the Flx model is supposed to be based on the now-retired Neos.

It would have been nice if SEPTA did have Flxible Metros.

 

BTW, I now have one of those models. I'd rather pay $8 for it then $35 for that POS Silverliner model.

Nice pics - you probably know this already but a nice place to take both Regional Rail and SEPTA transit photos as well as your hourly Bolt and occasional Mega shots is at 30th Street Station - I go to school in Philly and commute every week between NY and Philly and believe me, it's a great photo location considering everything you can take in within a few minutes of each other...

 

Also, have you ever tried taking the :nec: to Trenton, the :septa: R7 to 30th Street, getting off there, taking pics, taking the SS Trolley into Center City, getting something to eat, Center City pics, then the (NJT) #551 to AC and take some line run and charter bus pics before taking the (NJT) #319 or GLI/Academy bus back to the city?

I'm coming from NW New Jersey. When I go to AC, I use the local casino run. Considering the horror of my ride home via the M&E/NEC/R7 combo (A 10 min delay in Trenton cost me an hour at Secaucus. I thought about asking NJT for some free tickets.), the next trip to Philly will likely be via M&E/Bolt or Mega.

Your casino line run, is it Aristocrat Limo or Lakeland?

 

Also, at least from my standpoint because of the fact that I travel with both carriers nearly every week, Bolt has a more consistent schedule and better customer service (about every hour to hour and a half) with departures, particularly from Thursday to Monday, they usually use the X3's but during the heavy times, the DL's from Secaucus make it down as well - Mega is cheaper though and most likely you will catch a Van Hool on the run unless it's the lone Elizabeth run which operates during weekday afternoons.
