In the likely event that Amazon picks Philadelphia to build it's HQ2--along with it's 50,000 jobs--what would this mean for Septa's Capital Plan and the proposed Broad Street Subway Extension?

Nothing at all. 50k jobs are not actually that big a deal for a large city like Philly.
Travelled: Broadway Limited (1), Lake Shore Limited (6), Capitol Limited (7), Empire Builder (1), Southwest Chief (2), Sunset Limited (1), California Zephyr (3), Coast Starlight (2), Silver Meteor (5), Silver Star (5), Silver Palm (2), Crescent (1), Cardinal (4), Auto Train (4), Pennsylvanian (2), Palmetto (1), Acela Express (1), Empire Service (1), Northeast Regional (11), Keystone Service (1) --- Total Miles: 50,144 --- Total Trains: 61
Most important: Keep it Simple, Stupid!

Depending on where they put the HQ, if it's in the old naval yards, Philly has proposed a one stop extension to the south for the Broad Street Line. Otherwise, there will probably be little to no effect.

If I won the lottery, I'd probably build a passenger from nowhere to nowhere.
