Tree on wires knocks out SEPTA from Doylestown to Link Belt

    Philadelphia’s regional rail service says service remains suspended between Doylestown and Link Belt due to a downed tree on overhead power lines.

    SEPTA says limited service is operating from Link Belt to downtown Philadelphia during Thursday morning’s rush.

    The agency says passengers should expect delays and some cancellations.

    It’s the second day this week service has been affected on the Lansdale/Doylestown line. Trains were halted for about 3 hours on Tuesday after a train struck and killed a woman between the North Wales and Gwynedd Valley stations.

    The 34-mile Lansdale/Doylestown line has a daily ridership of more than 16,000 people.
