It almost seems to good to be true.

On Monday, October 3rd, SEPTA Regional Rail will resume a regular weekday schedule, the organization announced today.

It’s the first return to normalcy since SEPTA sidelined its Silverliner V Regional Rail fleet in July because of a structural defect, prompting commuting chaos, heavily-adjusted schedules and disgruntled Regional Rail passengers across the region.

All lines will return to prior schedules come Monday, with the exception of the Media/Elwyn Line, which will have a new schedule starting October 2nd.

While SEPTA continues to operate with leased cars, the following four trains will see modifications on Monday, per a press release:
