Philadelphia's SEPTA will operate shuttle train service on the West Trenton (R3) Regional Rail line the last two weekends of July (18-19 and 25-26) and the first weekend of August (1-2). The shuttle will avoid possible delays to Airport (R1) line train service due to three grade crossing renewal projects at Pine, Rydal and Red Lion Roads.During these weekends Meadowbrook Station will be closed. Passengers can utilize nearby Bethayres or Rydal stations.Revised timetables are available online at www.septa.org and will be posted at all affected stations on the West Trenton Line.
