SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail Line is Back in Business

By

SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail Line to Norristown has resumed normal operations after it was partially shut down due to the flooding damage from Hurricane Ida, according to a staff report from CBS3 Philly.

According to SEPTA, officials in municipalities along the line have been working with the transportation agency around the clock on temporary road closures and other adjustments that were necessary to complete the repairs in a timely manner.

Severe flooding from the devastating storm caused millions of dollars in damage to equipment, especially the railroad cross signals along the line.

Service between Spring Mill Station and Center City resumed on September 7, but service between Spring Mill and Elm Street Station continues to be suspended.

As a result, there is no service to/from Conshohocken Station as well as three stations in Norristown: the Norristown Transportation Center, Main Street, and Elm Street. Please check with SEPTA directly to check scheduled train times.

It is expected that it will take between six and eight weeks to fully complete the work. However, temporary measures have been put into place to allow service on the Manayunk/Norristown Line to resume.

There may be SEPTA personnel on the ground closing off the train crossings and flagging trains directions. This is expected to cause minor delays so customers it is suggested that you allow for extra time when traveling.
