I had a doctor appointment today in Philadelphia. The easiest and fastest way for me to get there is to hop a train right to Center City. The trip down was fine. I shopped a bit at Reading Terminal Market, went for my appointment and then had lunch.
Coming home was not so easy. There were power problems between Holmesburg Junction and New York City. having been stuck on the trian more times than I care for, I opted to take the long way home. I took the PATCO train to Camden, then the River Line light rail which stops 4 blocks from my house. I could have taken the R3 to West Trenton, but would have no way to get home from there except a cab......How lucky I am to have options!
