Walking down the steps into the 10th & Locust Hi-Speed Line (PATCO), I noticed an embedded piece of diamond plate metal in the floor below the first step. I thought, "Wow, what a nice thoughtful way to help people from slipping."
As I walked over to the next set of stairs, I was thinking that I didn't recall seeing that approach elsewhere. It just seemed like a bit of quirky knowledge that had not been widely disseminated or adopted. Continuing down that next set of steps, I came to this:
This is the platform level where you wait for the train. Note that the diamond plate metal piece is not there.
Not too long ago they redid all of the platforms and added this new tile floor. I am glad that continuing maintenance is being on the station, but I couldn't help but think that we lost a nice little quirky and very human touch.
