Remarks & Notes 
"The new kids on the block"

With a dramatic new view of the city of Philadelphia serving as a backdrop, an Amtrak Acela Express heads south after a late afternoon departure from 30th Street Station along the NEC bound for Wilmington, DE and eventually Washington D.C. The "new kids" in this shot include the relatively new skyscrapers to the left - the large "FMC Tower at Cira Centre South" (736' 49 floors 2016) and the smaller "Evo at Cira Centre South" (430' 33 floors 2014) to its left, as well as the recently topped out Comcast Technology Center (1,121' 60 floors 2018) in the center of the shot, its thin tip, earning it recognition as the tallest building in the United States outside fo Manhattan and Chicago.
