I was coming home from Inochicon(an Anime convention in Center City Philadelphia) Saturday night on the 570 R5 Landsdale train, and a few stops into the trip a woman(Paige Setzer) got on the train with a harp. The attendant teased her a bit about wanting to hear her play and after some of the other riders chimed in she relented and played a short set for the train. It was amazing to say the least. Since I had my HD Cam with me luckily I recorded this wondrous event to share with the interwebs. This is her last song she played.

This series of rail cars eliminates the familiar platforms at each end of the car, and you enter at 2 points mid-car - but not at the ends. If your station does not have a high boarding platform (like Warminster, Temple U, etc) the floor plate drops down and the steps appear. You enter directly into the conditioned space of the car. I captured this with my Palm 755p cell phone camera. Had I remembered, I could have grabbed my FLIP HD video camera when I left in the morning, which isn't much larger than the cell phone. Oh well. Try to watch in 720p.
