    From what I read in Berie Rudberg’s book, Twenty FIve years on the ND&C this station replaced the original after it burned down around 1900. Still a nice Station. I would love to own it and put my Railroadiana in it.

    A number of stations on SEPTA commuter liners were built with apartments on the second floor to house the station agent and his family. Today, SEPTA rents out some of those apartments–the first floor is retained as the ticket office and waiting room, but the second floor is a private residence.

    Some stations have been converted into restaurants, banks, or bookstores.

    I for one, (and hopefully the only one), would love to live there!
    The grounds are peaceful to me, and that doorbell sound of a
    train coming in blowing its whistle makes me smile!
    Love it, love it, love it!

    Some Long Island Rail Road stations have two-story buildings. Do they rent out the upper floors to people or businesses?

    That was quite a film, therealguyfaux. Check out the cast, and you will see that many went on to way bigger and better things.
