Train Scrapyards/Boneyards in SE PA

Postby mcgrath618 » Sun Apr 29, 2018 9:23 pm

I've been attempting to research abandoned trains in and around Philadelphia, and I was wondering if anyone knew any in the area. Thanks in advance!

I am not aware of any railroad scrapyards per se in the Philadelphia area. Recent scrappings on railroad property that I'm aware of include Septa F7 622 ( ex-LIRR power pack, nee B&O ) which was cut up at Roberts yard over the last few months. There have also been several locomotives and NJT Comet 1 cars scrapped on SRNJ at Winslow, NJ over the last few years and there are a couple decrepit pieces of rolling stock still down there, fate unknown. Other abandoned equipment in the area includes several locos in Oaks, PA behind the expo center on what was the Reading Perkiomen branch.
