If you choose to take FrontRunner, get ready for some throwbacks. The commuter train is getting some old-school rail cars.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) bought 25 cars from New Jersey. They are 1970s-era aluminum cars, built to haul 135 passengers.

UTA will add wireless Internet access and more room for bicycles before adding the cars to the trains.
