SEPTA opens new $22,000 bathroom and no, you can’t use it.

From phillyburbs.com:

For those who may be curious about the small new building along the SEPTA train tracks between the Link Belt and Chalfont stops, the answer is in.

The free-standing building is a restroom for conductors, said Kristin Geiger, a press officer with the transportation agency. She said the prefabricated unit, similar to what might be seen in a state park or at a highway rest stop, was installed after SEPTA added new railroad siding — a short stretch of track used to enable trains on the same line to pass — along Walnut Street in Chalfont.

Look, I’m all for bathrooms for regional rail conductors–even $22,000 ones–but why can’t SEPTA re-open the ones that we have in the City Hall station?
