Edwin:

Yes, thanks. There are 34 such quadruples up through the 1 millionth prime.
Best,
Harvey

And... based on your data: Here are the only two quadruples of successive primes of the form [p,p+30,p+60,p+90] up through the 100,000th prime:

[642427, 642457, 642487, 642517]

[1058861, 1058891, 1058921, 1058951]
