Philadelphia Trolley Tracks:

2012 Route 15 Rail Renewal

Northern Liberties Loop February 2012

When trolleys return to Route 15 - hopefully by mid-April 2012 - this new loop at Frankford Avenue & Delaware Avenue will be the new eastern terminus for trolleys. A diesel bus shuttle will serve the eastern portion of Route 15 until, perhaps, 2014 or 2016.
In late 2011 - early 2012, SEPTA is spending $1.2 million to replace 7000 linear feet of badly worn rail on Girard Avenue.

SEPTA's $1.2 million investment in Route 15 hopefully bodes well for the line's future as an electric streetcar route.
