Remarks & Notes 
SEPTA commuter patrons go about their business as an eastbound Amtrak Keystone barrels through Ardmore, PA. The station was built in 1957 to replace the much larger and more elegant 1879 built station seen here, which was burned in a fire. This stretch of track was originally built by the Philadelphia & Columbia Railroad as a double-track right of way and originally operated on a turnpike basis open to all comers, with shippers supplying their own RR cars, horsepower, and drivers. Today, it serves all SEPTA commuter trains and most Amtrak's trains, but, alas, horse drawn carriages were banned for through traffic in 1844.
