Modeling the Lackawanna's Newton Passenger Station

© Dave Rutan 2004


The drawings presented here are based on photographic evidence and ICC Valuation Map information. I've drawn the station as it might appear in 3 distinct time periods, 1910, with the full portico, 1953, the steam/diesel transition period, and 1966, the end times with no portico.

Thanks to Bob Pennisi at Railroad Avenue Enterprises, I have secured several photographs that are so sharp and clear, I can easily count the bricks to determine the measurements of the doors and windows!

If you see anything amiss in my drawings, please speak up. I strive to make these as accurate as possible.

If you ever had opportunity to be INSIDE this station, I'd love to attempt a floor plan.
