Thousands of miles of railroads have been abandoned in the United States, much of it in the last 30 years. All of these railroad lines have a history and a story. This web site is dedicated to the preservation of the history of each of these former railroad lines.
The Chester Creek Branch of the PRR/PC near Philadelphia was abandoned in 1971. Most of the track has been left in place. This picture shows the line at Dutton Mill Road in Aston, PA. (Photo by Joe Sharretts in February 2004)
