30th St Station may get new name

30th St. Station may get new name

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia's major train station may soon be getting a new name following a vote in Congress.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday that a proposal to rename 30th Street Station for former U.S. Rep. Bill Gray passed the House in a voice vote.

Gray helped get millions to refurbish the station in the 1980s, while serving as a Democratic congressman from 1979 to 1991.

Gray died at age 71 a year ago.

If it passes the Senate, the bill would rename the facility the ``William H. Gray III 30th Street Station.''

The paper says the 81-year-old station is Amtrak's third-busiest.
