Apparently, Septa will be getting some new regional rail cars. It sounds like the seats will be extra comfy and there’s something about a video screen? I guess we’ll see what happens. Now that I’m taking the train every day, nice comfy seats would make me happy. Lately during the peak trains in the evening they’ve been short of cars and a whole slew of people are left standing. Luckily since I get on the first of the downtown stations, I always get a seat, but it’s still uncomfortable being squeezed into my seat.
We’ll see when these new cars get into place, but I hope it’s soon.
I’ll leave with a video of Gladys Knight & The Pips singing Midnight Train to Georgia:
