New Claymont Station

Post by riffian » Mon Jul 30, 2018 7:15 pm

Has there been any progress on the new station at this site, reportedly going in on the old Phoenix Steel site? Will this new station replace both Claymont and Marcus Hook?? Thanks

It will be only a half mile up - with better road access - but still a ways south of Marcus Hook, so I expect no closure would happen there.

From past discussions, I had the impression that the new station would be south of Claymont near Edgemoor.

The below article from 2016 provides some background information on the new station for those who didn't know (like me): ... /87700644/" onclick=";return false;
