This early station was at 11th and Market Streets and opened in 1843. The railroad vacated it in 1852 and it was then bought by the PRR and used as a temporary freight station and then as a passenger station beginning in 1854.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Allen Lane (PRR) - The shelter was added in 1890.

Chestnut Hill (PRR) - Station was heavily modified when line was electrified in 1918.

North Philadelphia (PRR - 2900 North Broad ) - Formerly known as Germantown Junction Station. On National Register Of Historic Places.

Overbrook (PRR) - This is purported to be the oldest station on the Main Line from Overbrook to Paoli, dating from 1858. It is built entirely of wood and has seen much use and wear. It was formerly known as City Avenue Station. There is a splendid brick interlocking tower about 50 yards east of the station, and an artfully-built concrete bridge which carries City Line Ave. over the tracks. Here is an old photo. The westbound passenger shelter is on the Drexel Rd. side of the tracks.  The descriptive information is for the inbound (Eastbound) station/ticket office/newsstand/residence near the signal tower on the 63rd St. side of the tracks. -- James Boylan

Philadelphia (PRR - 30th & Market) - More Info from Allen Underkofler's site.

Philadelphia (PRR - JFK Boulevard) - More Info from Allen Underkofler's site.

Philadelphia (PRR Freight) - Original PRR LCL container transloading facility in Fairhill Yard. Addition to building built in 1945. +50,000sq ft clear span in original building with two overhead cranes and three indoor tracks and one outdoor track. Active rail-related facility.

Philadelphia (RDG - North Broad Street) - A previous station sat at this same site and it was referred to as Reading's Huntingdon Street station. After closing, the building became a motel and is now a halfway house.

Queen Lane (PRR) - This station was originally one story. A second story was added in 1890.

Philadelphia (RDG - 8th & Spring Garden) - The station still sits intact on the north corner of 8th and Spring Garden. It is a two-story building. The second story is an elevated passenger station.

Philadelphia (RDG - 12th & Arch) - Also site of the Reading Terminal Market. The market predates the station (in fact it is the descendant of the original market at the the eastern end of Market Street that gave the street its current name). When the P&R bought the site, the elevated station permitted the market to continue below. This station was eventually replaced by SETPA's Market East station when the PRR and Reading commuter lines were connected in the early 80's. The station's old buildings are in use for several purposes. The old train shed is now part of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Another part of the station is now part of a large food market with fresh and prepared foods served in stalls. The rest of the terminal is now a Hard Rock Cafe and office building. The Market East station is a block south of Reading Terminal and is located beneath The Gallery which is a large indoor mall. This is the second station to be built at this location. This station cost the railroad $90,000 to build.

Philadelphia (RDG - 8th & Spring Garden) - The station still sits intact on the north corner of 8th and Spring Garden. It is a two-story building. The second story is an elevated passenger station.

Shawmont (PG&N) - Originally built by the Philadelphia, Germantown & Norristown RR (later RDG) in 1834, it was closed by SEPTA in 1991. The station was called "Green Tree" from 1834-1873 and was at one time referred to as Nixon Street Station. The Shawmont Station is the oldest, original railroad station in the United States as the the 1831 station at Ellicot City, MD has been through restoration and been altered. It was built in the "Greek Revival" style and had the roof mouldings re-modeled and an addition put on the back in the 1870's. It also resembled a typical stagecoach stop, as many early PG&N stations did in the 1830's. It will likely become a national landmark in the years to come. --John Johnstone See this page for more info: Historic Shawmont Station.
