This should be fun.
Of course, you can’t have a vacation somewhere without going there first. So to get to Philidelphia, we have to go to Atlanta. So we take a small flight to Atlanta and wait there during the layover. Got to see plenty of planes there.
I also found some incandescent McCain beacons there, which was a surprise. One of them was a double beacon with a burn out bulb and the other was a single beacon.
After a long flight, I finally touched down in Philidelphia. At the airport there, I saw a Septa train.
Once I got out of the airport, I saw some older traffic lights, including a couple of Crouse-hinds Type-Rs and a Marbelite traffic light.
One of the Type-Rs:
We then got our rental car, and headed into the city. Along the Interstate, we passed by a CSX railyard where I saw some CSX engines.
Once we got into the downtown, we went to our hotel. The intersections near the hotel had a mixture of Siemens, Mark IV, ICC, LFE, and McCains at them. Here are some photos of one of the intersections:
I went back to the hotel room when it started to rail and recharged my camera battery. We went out later that afternoon once the rain let off to go eat supper. I took my DXG camera because my Canon was still charging. We walked down 13th Street and I found a lot of 8 inch TCT traffic lights along it.
We walked around a little bit more before we went back to the hotel room to turn in for the night.
