Older photos of each section.


Glatfelters - It is a 2 story orange-ish colored brick building. Milepost 49 is directly across from the building. Also, if you look closely, you can see the
foundation for the westbound passenger shelter beside the milepost.

Hallam - A carpenter from Hallam, dismantled and reconstructed the station at the rear of his property near 67 ?? East Market Street in Hallam in the 1960's. Cherry Avenue (a narrow alley) runs east and west on the north side of Market Street in Hallam. The railroad station originally sat south of Market Street near the old Hallam Furniture Factory.

Hanover - The station appears as though it was oriented towards the PRR right-of-way, so I suspect that the PRR actually built the station. The station sits between the two right-of-ways, and appears to have served both the WM and PRR. The CSX uses the old WM tracks, and the Ma & Pa uses the old PRR tracks. There is a diamond and an interchange just east of the station. There are DOT stop signs facing the Ma & Pa tracks at the diamond ... I found that interesting. -Greg Halpin

Hanover Jct. -  York Co. rail/Trail Authority to start restoration of this station in the near future. It will be restored to it's 1863 time frame. It was used by the PRR, NCR, the Hanover Jct. Railway, and Western Maryland. 

Laurel - The MA&PA station in Laurel was located in a general store. The building is currently used by a woodworking business. The tracks are still in place, extending about 500 feet north, and owned by an Authority of York County. Eventually, the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Preservation Society hopes to extend the rail excursions operated from Muddy Creek Forks as far north as Laurel.

Muddy Creek Forks - This station was located in a large general store built in 1900 by A.M. Grove. The station is located along a six mile section of the original M&P mainline acquired in 1986 by the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Preservation Society. The store/station and surrounding village was acquired by the Society in 1996. The buildings and tracks are now owned by an Authority of York County. The Society has restored the store, including the station room, to its 1920s appearance. The village is open on Sundays during the summer and excursions are offered by the Society from the station over 3 miles of the track.

New Freedom - Bill Knepper of the York Co. Rail/Trail Authority writes, The station is undergoing restoration. It was built in the time frame of 1860-1870. It was enlarged 3 times, we could tell that because the wood was of 3 different sizes. It looks like the original section was the passenger end, later it looks like the freight shed was built on, and later the freight end was enlarged. About 15 feet was added to the north end. The station was disassembled and rebuilt in 1999.

Seven Valleys - This is the second oldest existing station in continuous use in the USA. It is now a general store. The only unscheduled closing was for four hours during the assassination of President McKinley in 1903. The waiting room still has the arrival and departures boards hanging on the wall from the 1950's, and the station masters office remains in use as the manager's office. The ticket window remains as originally constructed in 1838.

Snyderstown (Yoe) - Combination general store/post office/passenger station. Village was originally called Snyderstown, but the Postal Service rejected the name for a post office as another already existed in Pennsylvania. Town was then renamed Yoe. A second Yoe passenger/freight station was built later, across the street, and was razed by the railroad in the 1970s.

Stewartstown - Has original waiting room, ticket office, and freight house. Brick station, however second story is wood.  The Railroad has been closed to tourists for a few years now since a derailment a couple years back on their Easter Bunny Train. The station is currently in poor condition with holes in the roof and a crumbling platform. Volunteers occasionally will maintain the tracks to a certain degree, but for the most part, past Tolna the railroad is abandoned with exempt signs at the grade crossings. --Thomas Gallion, 2007
