Amtrak’s National Train Day
30th Street Station, 2955 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104
This Saturday from 11:00-4:00 p.m. you can stop by Amtrack’s 30th Street Station and have a great time without ever leaving. I have never been to this event but the more I read the more I want to go. I did find out from another Mom that the lines can be long so you are going to want to go early and be prepared. The cool thing is that it looks like there is a ton of stuff going on.
Here is a list of what is going on but you want to click here for the day’s schedule so you can plan your trip around exactly what you want to see.
Train Equipment Guide: Now this sounds fancy because space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk through privately owned, luxury railcars and explore freight and commuter trains, as well as current Amtrak equipment. Click here for the complete details. There will be no ticketing system this year, so be sure to arrive early! Exhibits open at 11:00 a.m.
