Following the eternal quest to answer the question "What's there?", I have found many of the questions have centered around the various transit stops throughout the area. People are interested in mass transit but aren't ready to commit until they have a better understanding of the areas and "What's there". Toward that end, over the next few months, I will periodically add videos to the site both to document the various stops and provide you with some additional information on the surrounding areas. In due course, I should be able to cover all the various rail lines that continue through the county into Philadelphia. I will also cover the adjacent areas in Montgomery County and New Castle County, DE. Hopefully, this will provide you with a better feel for the options available as you loo...

It really is amazing what it out there, just beyond your own back yard.Today, my wife, Cecile, and I joined a friend of ours, Jeff, on a hike with the Sierra Club. We met at Smedley Park, a county park in Springfield, Delaware County, right off of Baltimore Pike between Interstate 476 (the Blue Route) and the Springfield Mall.  There were about 20 in our group, ranging in age from 27 to probably 85.Cecile and I have been to the park numerous times in the past.  Usually hiking the same set of trails that run underneath the interstate and along the trolley tracks towards Media.  But today we headed east along a trail that we did not even know existed.  We were told by the hike leader that the land is owned by Swarthmore College, and leased to the county.  It contains some of the oldest tr...
