Our way of giving back to the city of Philadelphia for coming together to preserve an icon.
Paying Homage to the 30th Street Station Solari Board
One year ago, Philadelphians rallied together and started a petition to keep the iconic Departures Board at 30th Street Station. Local press caught wind and gave the story front page coverage – even Congressman Brendan Boyle backed the city and called for the Split Flap to be preserved. Despite efforts, Amtrak removed the board on January 25, 2019.
To honor the board and give back to Philadelphia, we hosted a free public popup. During the two days, guests could operate a Split Flap and enjoy the classic sound.
Thank you to all of the Philadelphians who came out and shared their stories with us during the popup.
