This beautifully restored train station, which was featured in the films Trading Places, Witness (starring Harrison Ford), and M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, is alive with the hustle and bustle of busy urban commuters. The children will be thrilled to take a suburban rail train to and from the station, especially if the outing includes lunch at McDonald’s or one of the other eateries. The statue of an angel lifting a dead soldier honors Pennsylvania Railroad employees killed in World War II. Septa and Amtrak operate at the station.
