No they didn't. No clacking, same set up they have at New York Penn Station. I miss the announcers already :(.

Somehow the time is smaller than on the old board, and the new automated PA system is terrible. Someone at Amtrak didn't realize that 30th street is echoy by nature, and the audio system reverbs so much you can't hear any announcement.
agreed, although the trains are much more clearly displayed

I too miss the Solari boards.

Here is a remaining unusual place to get an Amtrak train connection clacked out: the Ferry Building in San Francisco.
