Remarks & Notes 
On the next-to-last day of summer, 1981, the last rays of sun bathe the 1902 Philadelphia & Reading Railway station in Lansdale, PA. Conrail still operates all Philadelphia commuter rail service, and will continue to do so for another 15 months, when the tumultuous SEPTA takeover will occur. The brotherhoods were not receptive to having some of the rail division's trains run by city transit employees. A few months after the takeover, a strike that lasted 108 days ensued, and labor-management relations were scarred for a long time. For the younger viewers, that aluminum and red and glass thing at the end of the platform is called a "telephone booth".
