The Southampton Train Station has been in various states of disrepair despite efforts to restore and save it. The Station is located in Upper Southampton. These photos are from between 2007 and 2009 or perhaps a bit earlier.

The SEPTA Fox Chase – Newtown line stopped at County Line, Southampton, Churchville, The George School and Newtown. It carried freight and passengers. 

 
A building that was the Southampton Freight Station is located across the street on Knowles Avenue and Second Street Pike.

Update Sept 2019 – The station is still closed and badly in need of repair. The tracks have been removed from in front of the station. The vintage lamposts are still on the platform.

  2. Hello ,is there any photos of the freight station and coal unloading platform at 2nd St. Pike where the Steam Pub currently is now? Especially when it was in use or shortly after abandonment.

    1. I don’t have any or know of any offhand. However, there was a group that was trying to save the passenger station. Maybe they could help out.

      I thought I saw some books on local history in the Southampton Library but that was a very long time ago so I’m not sure.

      Sorry I can’t be of more help,. I’ll keep my eyes open for any pics or info
