Train Station

AS I WAS watching the Academy Awards last week - the red carpet, the paparazzi, the cleavage - I was struck by the thought that Philadelphia missed a big opportunity a few months back to glitz up an award of its own. There were no breathless speeches or fawning reporters on hand for that one, though. Just a gaggle of tattooed passengers yelling obscenities in a stinky train station. OK, maybe it wasn't exactly like that, but that's the way I would've announced that SEPTA had won the 2012 transit Oscar - the American Public Transportation Association (APTA)

ASSIUT, Egypt - Thousands of brick workers blocked railroad tracks from a southern city to Cairo for a second day Sunday to protest rising industrial oil prices, causing the cancellation of some services, security officials said. The government lifted industrial fuel oil subsidies last week as part of a reform program, prompting labor protests by quarry and brick factory workers. Egypt has been gripped by unrest in recent days, partially because of public discontent with new government measures designed to deal with a crippling budget deficit.

A new Paoli train and bus station, with a 600-space parking garage, will be built near the existing 60-year-old train station, if someone comes up with $80 million. SEPTA and local government officials on Wednesday announced the selection of the preferred site for the new station, but SEPTA only has funding for design work. That $7.5 million design plan will take about three years, said Robert Lund, SEPTA assistant general manager of engineering, maintenance and construction.

It doesn't have the thrilling punch of a soap opera, but the drama over rejuvenating Ardmore around the train station certainly has the drawn-out pace of one. In the hope of speeding up at least part of the nearly decadelong project, the Lower Merion Township Economic Revitalization Committee on Wednesday renewed an agreement with Dranoff Properties to build - eventually - housing, stores, and parking space on what is now the municipal parking lot...

Ashley Ryan Hareford, 20, was charged this afternoon with sexually assaulting the 13-year-old Radnor Township, Delaware County, girl whose disappearance last week set off a multi-state manhunt. The girl told police that she and Hareford, who was arrested at a Washington, D.C., bus station hours after the girl was reported missing, had "several" sexual encounters. Hareford, who was extradited from Virgina today, has admitted the encounters, which allegedly occurred at the Garrett Hill SEPTA train station and in a wooded area near the King of Prussia Mall, officials said.

Coal trains stopped trundling over Darby Creek into Exelon Corp.'s Eddystone generating station some time ago, after the utility announced plans to retire its coal-fired power generation units. By this time next year, a train could begin rolling in daily to Eddystone carrying Bakken crude oil from North Dakota for use at Philadelphia-area refineries. On Monday, Enbridge Inc. , of Calgary, Alberta, said it has agreed with a Philadelphia-area partner to form the Eddystone Rail Co. and convert the train facility at the generating station from one capable of handling coal hoppers to tank cars.
