Philadelphia and Trenton Railroad were built in February 1832. Their basic capital amounts to $ 600,000. The warehouse is located on large land areas between Frankford Road and Front Street. On March 23, 1839, he made a second collective act in the capital. The firm was given permission to resume its traces from the Kensington warehouse at Frankford Road and Maiden Street for the next year, while the other railroad did not build on the second route from the Kensington warehouse to the 3rd and Willow Street warehouse.
Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company brought the solution on April 4, 1833. The main and principal goal of the firm was to build a railroad from Petrova Island, four miles from Philadelphia, to connect with Philadelphia. The distance was fifty-four miles. One was open for travel in 1835 while the Richmond Harbor Terminal became active in 1842. In 1850, the state railroad was moved from 13th and Callowhill Street to Peters Bay, it was purchased by the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company.
History of North Pennsylvania Railways
In 1851, there was significant interest in building a railway linking Philadelphia with the Lehigh region. This resulted in co-operation in April 1852 between Philadelphia, Easton and Water Gap Railroad Company. The name of the new firm was also changed in April 1853 to the new company North Pennsylvania Railroad Company. The firm began formally with work in July 1855, an excursion to the Cohoquinoque train station, Front, and Willow Street, in Fort Washington. the track to Bethlehem was put into operation in 1857. The main iron storehouse remained on the Front and Willow streets until 1864, when it was moved to Germantown Road, above Thompson’s streets (later used as a warehouse for dairy products). Years later, the warehouse was built on Third and Berks streets. North Pennsylvania Railways are today an integral part of the Reading Rail System, which are the oldest and longest remaining members.
New railroad idea in the city
Like in New York and Chicago, the city of Philadelphia is about to turn overboard overhead railways into green areas. Instead of the railroad, the thresholds will be the lower trees, the flowers and the greenery that has sunk in this part of the city. The overground railroad, which he has sent with the introduction of the subway, will thus get a completely different role. Overground parks connect 50 blocks of this great city. Not only will the Philadelphia residents be able to enjoy the green areas, but they will also be able to reach the desired shores in the shade of the crown.
