Remarks & Notes 
NS 9947 Passing Historic Reading Station in Pottsown, PA in the early morning. The station was built in 1928 and was active long enough to be served by SEPTA diesel service trains until 1981. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 12, 1984, and is located in the Old Pottstown Historic District. The station was designed in the Classical Revival style by the railroad's engineering staff rather than by an outside architect. Stations built in the nineteenth century by the Reading Railroad had usually been designed by outside architects, including Frank Furness. During the twentieth century, the railroad became less profitable and most stations were designed in simpler styles in-house Photo by Shawn A Leightcap
