Photographer's Note

This station was built in 1891, shortly after the rail line arrived in New Hope. The rail line into New Hope was made famous by the silent film "Perils of Pauline". In it, our heroine was tied to the tracks on a railroad trestle less than a 1/2 mile from where I was standing. As a train is approaching she is rescued at the last minute by her true love.

But, as automobiles and busses became more popular, the rail line and train station went into a state of decline. This station was almost a victim of "demolition by neglect" until a local group of railroad enthusiasts started a project to restore it.

The station and adjacent storage buildings now house a museum. Tourists can now visit the complex for a journey back in time complete with a ride on vintage rail cars pulled by a steam locomotive.
