SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line Poster


The Norristown High Speed Line (SEPTA route 100) began as a Philadelphia & Western Railroad interurban trolley in 1907 between the new 69th St Market-Frankford terminal and Strafford, PA. In 1912 a branch was built to Villanova and then extended to Norristown. The new branch proved more popular than the Strafford branch which was eventually abandoned in 1956. A year before, in 1955, the line was taken over by the Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Co (more commonly known as the Red Arrow Lines) along with Routes 101, 102, 103, and 104. Route 103 to Ardmore was abandoned in 1966 and Route 104 to West Chester was abandoned in 1958.

The Norristown High Speed Line runs four services, a local, the Norristown Express, Hughes Park Express (short turning at Hughes Park, and the Norristown Limited which only stops at 6 stations between Norristown and 69th St. Unlike the Market-Frankford Line and Routes 101 & 102 (which use a larger 5′ 2.5″ rail gauge) the Norristown Line uses a standard 4′ 8.5″ gauge meaning that service could not be extended into Philadelphia via the existing subway.
