A latter view, 1971, is in the book Great American Stations by Janet G. Potter. on page 214. A Passenger platform shelter has been added for protection from the elements and the building looks to be unaltered. Now it is a Amtrak owned, Septa train stop maintained by a local civil association. reading the text on the station it says that 2/3 on the station remains. Comparing the photo with the original drawing, not counting the covered platform, the only thing missing is the 2 benches in the front. I don't see 1/3 of anything missing unless the text speaks on the interior.

Itty-bitty thing, isn't it? Looks like it would make a pretty good model railroad structure.

I do agree with you. The size of it is 25' X around 40' counting the restrooms. It is over 140 years old and still in use. Being of quarried stone block construction it is a solid building.

As I say - small, but would make a real good structure for a model layout.
