Encyclopedia > R3 (SEPTA)

The R3 is a route of the SEPTA Regional Rail commuter rail system. The former Pennsylvania Railroad end of the route serves the western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with service to Media, terminating in Elwyn in Middletown Township, Pennsylvania, and the former Reading Company end serves the northern suburbs with service via Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, terminating at West Trenton in Ewing, New Jersey. Service once extended further on both ends - west beyond Elwyn to West Chester and northeast beyond West Trenton to Jersey City, New Jersey.

R3 Media/Elwyn

The Media/Elwyn Line connects Center City Philadelphia with Elwyn, branching from the Northeast Corridor at Arsenal Interlocking, just south of 30th Street Station. The line is a two-track line and was electrified in the 1920s, at the same time the present day Northeast Corridor was electrified between Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware.

Unlike most of the former Pennsylvania Railroad lines, which are entirely grade separated with very few grade crossings, the Media/Elwyn Line has numerous grade crossings. Characteristic of the line is the three high trestle crossings, the longest being that over Ridley Creek between Media and Elwyn. The present crossings were built by the PRR in the early 1920s during the electrification project. 1893 map The Pennsylvania Railroad (AAR reporting mark PRR) was an American railroad existing 1846–1968, after which it merged into Penn Central Transportation. ...

West Chester

Until 1986, commuter service on the line continued past Elwyn to West Chester. In fact, the line itself is still known in official documentation as the West Chester Line. Major rehabilitation was needed on the line, and SEPTA had limited funds for the necessary repairs. In addition, Chester County was more interested in expanding the Exton station on SEPTA's R5 line. SEPTA only had funds for one of the two projects, so R3 service to West Chester was terminated in favor of expanded R5 service.

Unlike the line between Arsenal Interlocking and Elwyn, the line past Elwyn is single track, although prior to the SEPTA takeover in 1983, there were passing sidings at or near most of the stations. These passing sidings, located near Glen Riddle, Lenni (where the abandoned PRR Chester Creek and Wawa branches merged with the line), Glen Mills, Cheyney, Westtown, and West Chester, are easily marked with the PRR's trademark "bowtie" catenary poles--single track areas used single-pole catenary supports. The sidings allowed multiple commuter trains to operate on the single-track section. Currently, the single track section of the R3 near Lenni is used by the SEPTA Regional Rail division to train new operators, and the section from West Chester to Glen Mills is used by the West Chester Railroad, which operates scenic excursion trips on weekends. Amtrak maintenance trains use the line to access a quarry located near the Glen Mills station. Local residents and businesses of West Chester are lobbying to SEPTA and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission to bring regular commuter service back to the line.

Elwyn to Wawa Rail Service Restoration

In June of 2005, SEPTA gave the Notice to Proceed to URS Corporation for the engineering and design of the restoration of rail service between Elwyn and Wawa stations. This follows a feasibility study and other earlier studies as early as the 1990s. SEPTA estimates that the cost for the 3-mile extension of service is $51,327,000. The construction project would include new track, catenary, signals, communications, and structures; and a new station at Wawa with a large park-and-ride facility. The location of the new Wawa station next to US Route 1 allows for excellent highway access. 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


According to a Delaware County Times article of October 18, 2004 ("R-3 rail line extension on track"), the new Wawa station is estimated to have 500 commuters on a typical weekday. The engineering phase, which includes preliminary engineering, environmental impact analysis, and final engineering, will be complete in 2007 or 2008. Construction will follow and take 24 to 36 months to complete, or 2011 at the latest. 2007 (MMVII) will be a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) will be a leap year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


R3 West Trenton

The West Trenton Line connects Center City Philadelphia with the West Trenton section of Ewing, New Jersey, where a branch formerly ran to downtown Trenton. Like all of the Reading Company's commuter lines, the West Trenton Line was electrified in the early 1930s and has a mix of at-grade and grade separated crossings. Electrified service to West Trenton was opened on July 26, 1931. The line splits from the SEPTA Main Line at Jenkintown, running northeast. At Bryn Athyn, it crosses over the remnants of the former Philadelphia, Newtown and New York Railroad, now part of the R8 Fox Chase line. At Oakford, the former New York Short Line Railroad, once part of the Reading's main line to West Trenton and Jersey City, merges.

Prior to 1983, the line continued north to Newark (Jersey City prior to the Aldene Plan of the 1960's), using Budd-built diesel-powered multiple-unit cars, but was dropped when SEPTA eliminated funding for Conrail operations north of the electrified lines. Currently, New Jersey Transit is looking at starting a commuter service between West Trenton and Newark, allowing an alternative to the SEPTA/NJ Transit service on the nearby Northeast Corridor line, as well as expanding rail service to currently unserved areas of Central Jersey. 1983 (MCMLXXXIII) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The line north of the split at Jenkintown was originally built as the National Railway project, opened on May 1, 1876 to provide an alternate to the United New Jersey Railroad and Canal Companies' monopoly over Philadelphia-New York City travel. From Jenkintown to the Delaware River it was built by the North Pennsylvania Railroad as a branch, while the New Jersey section was built by the Delaware and Bound Brook Railroad, merging with the Central Railroad of New Jersey at Bound Brook. In addition to the Philadelphia and Reading Railway (later the Reading Company), which leased the North Pennsylvania Railroad on May 14, 1879, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad also used the line for passenger and freight service to New York City. In the mid-1900s, the New York Short Line Railroad opened, providing a cutoff from the Philadelphia, Newtown and New York Railroad (now the R8 Fox Chase line) to the main New York line at Oakford. That cutoff is no longer used, and the R3 West Trenton uses the original route via Jenkintown. In 1976 the Reading merged into Conrail, and in 1983 SEPTA took over operations.

SEPTA only had funds for one of the two projects, so R3 service to West Chester was terminated in favor of expanded R5 service.
Currently, the single track section of the R3 near Lenni is used by the SEPTA Regional Rail division to train new operators, and the section from West Chester to Glen Mills is used by the West Chester Railroad, which operates scenic excursion trips on weekends.
