Time Changing R1

It's 5am California time. Time changes, specifically east coast to west coast always rock me. It's like I am in a different world.

Yesterday I took the R1 train from the airport and walked around Philly. It's an electrified commuter line into the central city. The seats are nice and big and there is a ticket man who actually punches your ticket. Never had that done before. It was a pretty fast trip too.

Also when walking around Philly I noticed there are lots of tracks still in the ground. They are definitely not new and sometimes look like they need some work but it's amazing they are still around which kind of speaks to the permanence of the lines and why developers are hopping at the chance to build near new ones.
