SEPTA hosts wedding ceremony for 50 guests on Regional Rail
Everybody knows that the train is the most romantic form of transportation. Still, SEPTA helped a local couple take it even further, hosting their wedding ceremony on the Paoli/Thorndale line. Autumn Katzenmoyer and Steve Patterson were married riding the rails from Downingtown to Suburban Station.
SEPTA wedding? Really?
In short, hell yes.
I’m usually a pretty negative person, and I admit I rolled my eyes when I first saw this, but I’ve decided I can’t hate on it whatsoever. I was *this* close to launching into a longwinded rant about how horrible SEPTA is. They accommodated a wedding but can’t run more than a train an hour? Anyway, I’m burying my point.
What I’m trying to say is, I fucking love trains.
From Thomas the Tank Engine to Japanese Maglevs to easily accessible public transportation, I’ve loved trains my whole life. Ask anybody at TLL; they’ll confirm it for you.
I don’t know what it is, but trains are the shit. Every day I take the train, I feel more alive. The purest love I’ve ever felt is the one generated by eye contact with a girl on the Regional Rail.
Some might argue that says more about my emotional immaturity than it does the romantic power of the R5, but to them, I say choo-choo, bitch.
Sure, there’s a sweet backstory involving the two taking the R5 to visit each other when they were dating, but that did nothing to warm my icy heart. But the train? The train melted the hate from my soul.
I wish the couple nothing but happiness until it all goes horribly. And when it does, SEPTA will be there to take you wherever you need to go (except for large sections of the city and surrounding metro area).
