Recent conversations with SEPTA suggest that they are amenable to the use of an additional (Pennypack Trail currently functions as a recreational trail) portion of the Fox Chase - Newtown line as a recreational trail.  We are gaining support from residents in both Upper Southampton and Northampton Townships.  Thank you to all that have helped thus far and we look forward to your continued support.
