The first rail line of use in Septaland should always be a Norristown-Reading-Pottsville shuttle.

This "extension" is not really an extension...it's a new branch, based on the proposed route. It branches off from the Norristown HSL south of Norristown. So will the service operate as a shuttle to/from the current HSL? (a la the Princeton Dinky) Or will some trains run 69th St-KoP while other trains stay on the current route?

Excuse me?

For $1 Billion (another source said $1.2 Billion), SEPTA will get about four more miles and five, six, or seven more stations, and by 2040 gain an added 9,500 riders every weekday. What a plan!

Makes me feel better about the costs of New York's famed Second Avenue Subway!
