Passenger Stations: Allenwood, Pennsylvania

Allenwood-Pa-Station-1-27-2016 (2)

Gregg Township, named for U.S. House Representative Andrew Gregg, was founded in 1865 and is bordered by Lycoming County to the west and north, the West Branch of the Susquehanna River to the east, over which lies Northumberland County and White Deer Township to the south. The township shares Union County’s rural character with farms and woodlands dominating the landscape.

Allenwood is a small, unincorporated hamlet of Gregg Township known best for the Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex…. Unless, of course, you happen to be a railfan. Then it might be better known for the old Allenwood passenger depot along the tracks of the former “Reading Williamsport Line” from Winfield to Allenwood (north-south along the river).

Out of service, but in tact, like most stations still standing, Allenwood Station sits at the extreme end of the line. North of the station the track has been removed but the right of way still remains (hopefully to one day serve the Great Streams Commons). South, the tracks are used for storage of tank cars.
