30th Street Station's famous flipping board in Philadelphia
The Solari board clicks and clacks as it updates its list of arrivals, departures and their times. The sign at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia is one of the last of such signs in use in the United States and may be taken down soon. (Video by Julia Hatmaker/PennLive)
Amtrak Growing Philly's Future
Completed in June 2016, the Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan is a long-range, master planning effort led by Amtrak, Brandywine Realty Trust, Drexel University, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority to develop a comprehensive vision for the future of the 30th Street Station District in the year 2050 and beyond. The 30th Street Station District will become Philadelphia’s next great neighborhood: a place to live, work, learn, and play near one of the nation’s busiest and most important transportation hubs and accessible to one-of-a-kind urban and natural amenities.

Season 2 Ep 10: Philadelphia 30th Street
Opened in 1933 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Art Deco 30th Street Station in West Philadelphia is the main hub of the passenger rail system in the Philadelphia area. The station is split into a lower level for long distance and an upper level for commuter services, though NJ Transit operates into the lower level as their trains operate under diesel power. Trains on the upper level continue across the Schuylkill River into Suburban Station, Jefferson Station and onto the lines of the former Reading Company. Today, we see trains of Amtrak, NJ Transit and SEPTA heading to New York Penn, Boston South, Washington Union, Harrisburg, Atlantic City, Lansdale, Chestnut Hill West, Fox Chase and Philadelphia International Airport.

Philadelphia 4K - America's Founding Street - Driving Downtown USA
Fun Facts: Market Street in Philadelphia has been called the most historic street in the United States due to its historic sites. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson on this street. Home to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and National Constitution Center. Benjamin Franklin's house was located near the intersection of Fourth Street. Benjamin Franklin may have performed his famous kite-flying experiment near Third and Market Streets. The mansion of Robert Morris, financier of the American Revolution, was located near Sixth and Market Streets. This house, known as the President's House, was used by George Washington and John Adams as their residence during their terms as President. Market Street is still one of the principal locations of business and commerce in Philadelphia.
Market Street, originally known as High Street, is a major east–west street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The High Street was the familiar name of the principal street in nearly every English town at the time Philadelphia was founded. But if Philadelphia was indebted to England for the name of High Street, nearly every American town is, in turn, indebted to Philadelphia for its Market Street. Long before the city was laid out or settled, Philadelphia's founder, William Penn, had planned that markets would be held regularly on the 100-foot (30 m) wide High Street. The city's first market stalls were situated in the center of the thoroughfare starting at Front Street and proceeding west eventually to 8th Street. The stalls soon became covered and were not taken down as planned. Later, additional covered sheds appeared west of Center Square as the city expanded westward. The street began to be called Market Street around 1800. The road's new name was made official by an ordinance of 1858, coincidentally, just a year before the market sheds were ordered removed.
Market Street has been called the most historic highway in the United States because of the various historic sites along its eastern section. Many of Benjamin Franklin's activities were centered along Market Street. His house was located near the intersection of Fourth Street, and he may have performed his famous kite-flying experiment near Third and Market Streets. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence in a boarding house (the Graff or Declaration House) once located at the Seventh Street intersection. The mansion of Robert Morris, financier of the American Revolution, was located near Sixth and Market Streets. This house, known as the President's House, was used by George Washington and John Adams as their residence during their terms as President. (The house was more or less on the site of the northern part of the modern-day Liberty Bell Center.) Around 1795 Theophilus Cazenove lived at Market Street. Several important finance and publishing firsts also occurred along Market Street between Second and Fourth Streets during the 18th century. Market Street is still one of the principal locations of business and commerce in Philadelphia.
The most famous landmark on the road is Independence National Historical Park, at Fifth and Market Streets. Home to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and National Constitution Center, the complex is the heart of Philadelphia's Old City neighborhood.
East of the intersection of Front and Market Streets lies an entrance to Penn's Landing, alongside the Delaware River.
At 2nd Street stands the historic Christ Church, once the tallest building in North America.
Adjacent to Independence Mall is the National Museum of American Jewish History, which relocated to that location in 2010 and occupies the spot once held by CBS 3 and KYW Newsradio 1060.
Reading Terminal, the former grand railroad station for the Reading Railroad is located on the northeastern corner of 12th and Market Streets. It now serves as the grand entrance to the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
The PSFS Building, generally regarded as the first International Style building in the US, stands at the intersection with 12th Street.
Philadelphia City Hall stands atop Market Street's intersection with Broad Street. Commuters can access the Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, Subway Surface Lines, and Suburban Station through the 15th Street Headhouse (among other access points) across from City Hall.
One Liberty Place, formerly Philadelphia's tallest building, is located at the southeast corner of 17th and Market Streets. (It was surpassed in height by the Comcast Center, located a block to the north, in June 2007).
In the University City section of Philadelphia, Market Street crosses through the campuses of Drexel University and University City Science Center. As a result, the section of Market Street along University City is also signed Avenue of Technology.

Railfanning at Penn Park, Outside Philadelphia 30th Street Station (Farewell to the AEM-7) (6/18/16)
Decided to upload the other Amtrak trains I have captured while railfanning just outside Penn Park to see the AEM-7 Farewell Excursion. I met up with fellow railfanner Stuntpilot22 and 4 other guys. Sit back and relax as the ACS-64 (Northeast Regional) and Acela Express action unfolds.
30th street cloudscape 360p
I was waiting for the bus in Downtown Philadelphia and enjoyed the reflection of the clouds on one of the modern skyscrapers of Philadelphia. The clouds were drifting by and I took 30 min of footage and stretched the time to allow the audience to see the cloud dance as well as the wind whipping the flags of 30th Street Station.

Washington DC and Philadelphia in a Day (Starting and Ending in New York)
Video journal of a day trip to Washington and Philadelphia, starting and ending in New York. This short trip is ideal for those of you visiting New York but want to take a quick look at Washington and Philadelphia at the same time since they're nearby. Travel was done via Amtrak ($98 round trip), which was very comfortable and the seats had plenty of space to stretch. An alternative is to take one of various shuttle bus services that go between major cities in US East; the main advantage is the price which is usually around $25 round trip; the cons being they are not as reliable on timing and are subject to traffic, have smaller seats with less room to stretch, and generally take longer (4 - 5 hrs from NY to WA Vs 3 - 3.5 hrs by train). The buses generally also have plenty of tourists (Vs mostly people commuting to/from work on the train) so they can be more noisy.
Depart New York Penn Station @ 7:17 AM, arrive at Washington Union Station @ 10:40 AM
Depart Washington Union Station @ 5:05 PM, arrive at Philadelphia 30th Street Station @ 6:57 PM
Depart Philadelphia 30th Street Station @ 9:09 PM, arrive at New York Penn Station @ 10:34 PM
This gives about 6 hours to walk around in Washington and about 2 hours in Philadelphia.
