RAILFAN GUIDES HOME
RAILROAD SIGNALS HOME


There are precious few good references for many of the railroad stations and depots that used to exist.

One of the better resources I have come across to this end is the plethora of old post cards still around depicting many of these structures, some better than others.

Most of the postcards were found on EBay unless noted, other pictures, mostly the more recent ones, come from Google and/or Bing images - credit given if the source is known.

Dates are in the picture name, x means the date is approximate.  If they were available, and interesting, I included the back side of the postcards.  1910a and 1910b would be the same card, both sides.

If the picture was really, really bad, some of them have been cleaned up and/or repaired when I had the energy.

Since many of these stations are no longer around (railfans seem to prefer the term "extant", I'm not one of them! :-), this page is mostly for historical reference.

This page is mostly for historical reference, as MANY of these stations are not around anymore!

What's the difference between a station and a depot?  Most people will say "nuttin", it's a matter of preference, although many will use depot for older buildings.

If you have a picture you would like to contribute, please see the bottom of the page for how to find me, credit is always given to contributing photographers.

I wonder what happened to all of the "stuff" when they abandoned this line from Allentown PA to Warwick NY???
The depot is now owned by an engineering company.
