SEPTA is retiring its oldest kind of Regional Rail locomotive, but they gave it one last ride two weekends ago. A free express trip from Paoli to Suburban and back was run for the general public two weekends ago, and it was a lot of fun (save for some rabid railfans, but that was to be expected). The train had an AEM-7 on one end and SEPTA’s single ALP-44 on the other – both are being retired. This is just a photo dump, so enjoy! Click on each picture to open it up in full size.

As a bonus, I got the ALP-44 in service back in September! Here it is in Newark, DE.
