Remarks & Notes 
Fifty-six year old SEPTA MU car 9125 spends the weekend at West Trenton, New Jersey. Incredibly, the car is in revenue service in relatively fresh paint, its third paint scheme. Beginning life in 1931 as part of the electrification of Reading’s suburban Philadelphia service, the self-propelled coach was painted like the rest of the fleet, in Reading’s dark Pullman Green, and was numbered 870. In the mid-1960’s, the 870 was one of 38 MU cars that were rebuilt by the railroad, renumbered , and repainted blue with a large white window-band stripe. Now numbered 9125, the car was a part of the so-called “blueliner” fleet, serving in revenue service until 1990. The 9125 then was assigned to wire train service until the early 2000’s. Today the car still exists, languishing at the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad.
