Some PATCO pics 4/23/09

Recommended Posts

On my way to the Brewers-Phillies game when Dave Bush almost pitched a no-hitter, I took some PATCO pics. I would have taken more but once I arrived at the Woodcrest platform, the train already pulled in. Also, I did not have the railfan seat on the way back.

 

My PATCO ticket:

Out of the Mickle Street portal before going back underground in downtown Camden:

Delaware River and North Philadelphia:

I-95 South and the MFL tracks. IIRC, if the PATCO train was arrived to this spot a tad later, I would have caught an MFL train in this shot.

Thanks all! I think these are the first PATCO pics on this forum!

 

Also on the Jersey bound side on the BFB, you can see the Bank and the Linc.

I wish you have pictures of Franklin Sq!

I would've gotten more but the operator didn't pull his little partition closed on both trips and Patco "doesn't allow" photography of their stuff. From what I heard this year Patco is overhauling all their trains. Stripping the exterior and interiors etc. Shame they can't get new trainsets cause those things ride rough.

I actually like their fleet since they ride fast, and I like their RFW too.

 

Are you in South Jersey? I live up in New York.
