I often joke that I am the way I am because I grew up up the street from a Chemical plant. I’m not making it up though. Allied Chemical had a plant at the end of my street. Conrail served this plant via a spur with lots of character, and I’ve long wanted to catch a train there again.
Philadelphia contains a tangle of rail lines, and a ton of Railroad history. These photos come from a one day trip to show some of my Baltimore and Harrisburg friends some of the great stuff Philly has to offer. Ironically, we saw lots of things, but I don’t think we caught a single moving train all day.
