Holland, Pennsylvania - Resumption of Train Service

Resumption of Train Service

In the ensuing years since 1983, there has been heavy interest by both residents and politicians in resuming passenger service to Holland.

In September 2009, the Southampton-based Pennsylvania Transit Expansion Coalition (PA-TEC) began discussions with township officials along the railway, as well as SEPTA officials, about the realistic possibility of resuming even minimal passenger service to relieve traffic congestion in the region. Plans call for completing the electrification to Newtown, as originally planned in the late 1970s.

PA-TEC's efforts have received overwhelming bipartisan support by both Bucks and Montgomery County officials, as well as at the state level, despite SEPTA's overall reservations. However, SEPTA has also confirmed they are willing to reestablish regular commuter service if strong political support exists in both counties.

Famous quotes containing the words resumption of, service, resumption and/or train:

    Coming together again after a long day apart can be an experience where joy, relief, anger, and fatigue are all present in different degrees both for the parent and for the child. Because of their importance in marking the resumption of direct contact, reunions deserve as much attention and care as separations to enhance the relationship between parent and child.

    Still, I am prepared for this voyage, and for anything else you may care to mention.
    Not that I am not afraid, but there is very little time left.
    You have probably made travel arrangements, and know the feeling.
    Suddenly, one morning, the little train arrives in the station, but oh, so big
    It is! Much bigger and faster than anyone told you.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
