SEPTA Media Sharon Hill Line, Communications-Based Train Control
SEPTA’s Media – Sharon Hill Line (MSHL) serves predominately residential areas and commercial districts of Media, Collingdale, Aldan, Clifton, Drexel Hill and Upper Darby in Delaware County, and dates back to 1906 when the Red Arrow Trolley lines connected with West Chester and Ardmore. The surviving branches to Sharon Hill and Media wind through quiet neighborhoods and cross numerous busy suburban streets. There are 50 passenger stations on the MSHL including the terminal at 69th Street with transfers to the Market Frankford Line, Norristown High Speed Line and several bus routes. Stations are spaced along the total 12+ route miles roughly every ¼ mile. The fleet of double-ended light rail vehicles (LRVs, also still called trolleys), was put into service in 1982.
