Five trolley routes use the subway
under Market St. west of center city -- a unique (in this country, at least) example where
light rail serves as "local" service to heavy rail running on
adjacent tracks. The downtown terminal for all lines is along
a loop at City Hall.
West of the Schuylkill River the Subway-Surface lines Route 10
branches off first to exit in its own portal to head for Overbrook in the
northwest part of the city. The remaining four split after
reaching outdoors to head to southwest points: Route 11 to Darby
Transportation Center, Route 13 to Yeadon (some runs continue on to
Darby), Route 34 to Angora and Route 36 to Eastwick.
The above photo is at the Darby Transportation Center -- a location
which shows the remains of tracks and routes now vanished into
It must regrettably be reported that this section contains a very small number of images, for now.
