It’s been a very busy few weeks in Greater Philadelphia transportation news. The 24 hour Regional Rail strike. The continuing saga of Delaware’s I-495 bridge. The reintroduction of overnight weekend service on the El and Subway, which despite the lack of staffing at most stations, has so far been a smashing success. PATCO’s travails with the Ben Franklin Bridge reconstruction. Proposals for renaming 30th Street Station, and selling naming rights at Suburban Station.
I’ve barely written about any of it.
I’m sorry. I’ve been busy.

Our Quaker-style ceremony was last Saturday at Old First Reformed UCC, at 4th and Race in Old City.
Once it was over, how did we get ourselves and our ~150 guests, many from out of town, to the reception at 18th and Market without getting into — or causing — a traffic meltdown across Center City?
We led by example. And handed out a big basketful of tokens in the back of the church.
The full subway ride is documented in this photo album on That Evil Social Networking Site. Credit for all of the photos at that link, and on this page, goes to our photographer, Kat Clark. Many thanks to Heather Redfern at SEPTA for helping Ms. Clark get the proper permissions to take pictures on SEPTA property.
I’ll still be on a restricted writing schedule for much of the next few weeks, although I’ll try to write a trip report for the portion of our honeymoon trip to Montana that will be spent on Amtrak, as well as trying to write short squibs on things that come up, while we’re away. Best wishes.
