I first started going to
Philadelphia on an irregular and occasional basis as a teenager in
the early 1960s. The rooflines of the old Philadelphia subway cars
were very distinctive. I looked on the Budd car design as somewhat
minor-league compared to the New York subways with which I was much
more familiar, but each trip to Philadelphia was highly enjoyable.
