Good riddance. I hated the PA-3s. It was impossible to tell which train was which. The PA-4s weren't much better.


Also, am I the only one who noticed the PATHvision displaying Gertrude's Stein's quote "Punctuality is the virtue of the bored"? What sort of attitude is that for a transit service?

I never liked them and they're quite worn out by now. It is far too difficult to figure out which train is which. The NYC subway doesn't have that problem. You immediately know which train is which when it comes into the station because it's on the front and sides of the train in the form of a big letter. The PA-5 is a huge improvement in that regard. But, to each his own, I guess.

Neat video Nexis. By the look of things, it seems like they FINALLY cleaned up the pillars at Newport?

I like Exchange Place. Even though it is a little too barren (like not really anywhere to sit), it is neat and modern.

I think Newport has been that way for sometime, though I have no idea when they painted with the current colors.

What angered me was when PATH tore off the old signage and plopped on the new ones. No regard at all to the station's history, as Nexis had mentioned in an earlier post.
