The high level platforms will allow for level boarding and are still under construction and are not in the video (they are directly behind the person holding the camera).

How Philly Could Ride a Commuter Train Line Like a Subway

By Jake Blumgart | March 26, 2015


Philly’s regional rail once ran more frequently to neighborhoods outside of Center City. (Photo by Retromoderns)

Building new transit infrastructure is expensive, difficult and time consuming, but America’s cities need more of it. Philadelphia especially has a very limited subway-elevated system. (For those unfamiliar, just two lines run along main north-south and east-west corridors.) Philly does have an extensive regional rail system, with three lines that only run in the city limits through dense neighborhoods otherwise only served by bus. But that rail service is infrequent, and prohibitively expensive for many riders.

A 106-year-old drawbridge, which carries North Jersey Coast Line trains over the Raritan River, will be replaced due to structural damage from Hurricane Sandy.

“We applied for the (federal) funding because the existing bridge was damaged and a new structure with a resilient design is necessary,” said Nancy Snyder, a spokeswoman for NJ Transit. “It did suffer structural damage.”

What are you referring to? We've had several different types of equipment on this thread.

The Denver/Philadelphia cars are from Hyundai-Rotem. Take from that what you will.
