R6 Ivy Ridge Line

R6 Ivy Ridge Line would make a very nice trail

SEPTA abandoned this line in the 1980's and talks about running the Schuylkill Valley Metro are now focused on the other R6 (Norristown)

Interesting enough is that when the Ivy Ridge service was active the train did a loop starting in Ivy Ridge via Center City then coming back around to Manayunk Ivy Ridge station (adjacent tracks) to Norristown.

Lower Merion has put the rail line right of way in its open space plans. There is an open house planned on October 5 at the Township Building in Ardmore.
