Train to Glenside with My Canon AE-1

In March, Holly and I took the train to Glenside PA to meet my brother for dinner. We originally planned on taking the train on a Saturday to where my brother lives. However, the weather was rotten so we postponed until the following day. The trains to his neighborhood don’t run often on Sundays. SEPTA cut back service on that line during the pandemic and hasn’t restored it to its pre-pandemic level.

Instead of trying to work around that less than ideal scheduled, we decided to meet him in Glenside where trains run more frequently.

When I lived in Philadelphia before, I spent a fair amount of time in Glenside. I lived close to where my brother lives and Glenside was a 15-20 minute drive. Glenside is a pleasant suburb especially the cute Keswick Village neighborhood.

Holly and I took the train up early so we could explore a bit before meeting my brother for dinner.

I brought along my Canon AE-1 loaded with Kodak Portra 400 which I shot at 200 ISO.

I took a handful of photos near the train station and along Easton Rd.

Although the day was generally nice, there was a sudden snow squall which limited our desire to walk around. We walked toward Keswick Village where we planned to have dinner.

Despite the snow squall, it was a fun adventure. We tried a new-to-us restaurant, Elia Greek Cuisine which turned out to be excellent.

We always say we want to take trains to different neighborhoods but seldom do so. Maybe our successful trip to Glenside will compel us to go elsewhere.
