Photography with an Independence Pass: A dozen new photos.

Last week, I bought my SEPTA Independence Day Pass at 1234 Market Street.

For a mere $13 this allows for unlimited travel on the SEPTA network (with a few minor restrictions). See SEPTA: www.septa.org/fares/pass/independence.html

I made good use of the pass, traveling over several heavy rail routes to make photos.

One of the greatest features of this pass is the ability to get on and off trains without concern for cost, or trying to explain to the conductor where I’m are traveling to. This allows me to change my plan on the spot if I see an interesting location.

SEPTA offers regular interval service on most of its suburban lines, with extra trains in the evening rush hour.

    1. Coincident (or rather, in conjunction with) SEPTA’s installation of advanced signaling, including ATC and PTC, SEPTA has replaced legacy hardware with modern color-lights. The pattern adopted is the tri-angular arrangement similar to that used by the Reading Company, and thus visually consistent with older signaling on former Reading Lines. Where SEPTA operates on Amtrak lines, position lights remain the dominant type of line-side hardware. There are, of course, exceptions. Brian Solomon
