A tour of Bucks County, Pennsylvania

Southampton Station. Formerly part of the Fox Chase – Newtown Line

 

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.
