Railfan Pictures of the Week - 04/06/2003

Frankford Junction, Philadelphia Pennsylvania November 1991

Along with ZOO and Belmont, Frankford Junction is one of the busiest spots in Philadelphia. Amtrak, SEPTA, New Jersey Transit and Conrail (now CSAO, NS and CSX) all run through in one form or another. In these shots, the new color signals have been installed but not activated, meaning the Pennsy position signals are on the way out. But the four main tracks and electrification still harken back to the Tuscan and Brunswick.

Unfortunately the SEPTA station was closed several years ago and now the area is off limits.
