The Radnor and Wallingford train stations are among the historic stations that provide beauty and enjoyment for passengers of the SEPTA Regional Rail system, writes Melissa Romero for Curbed Philadelphia.

The SEPTA Regional Rail system stops at more than 100 stations throughout the region, and serves around 132,000 people every day.

“Regional Rail is my favorite mode of transport,” said Ayanna Matlock, SEPTA’s corporate initiatives manager. “It’s quick, convenient, and so comfortable.”

The ride is also quite charming at times, as it provides commuters and other travelers with views of quaint and historic stations. A number of them were built as part of the original Pennsylvania Railroad.

The 19th-century Radnor Station was designed by Joseph M. Wilson and Frederick G. Thorn, who later worked for Wilson Brothers & Company. As with many stations, Radnor’s also has a residence for the rail agent.

Built around the same time as Radnor Station, Wallingford’s was designed by the famed architect Frank Furness and used to double as the town’s post office.
