Not true. The last train to run on the Glen Mills track was when the WCRR wyed one of their engines as well as moved equipment out of the Lenni building back in Oct. The line has been since severed just south of the Rt 1 undergrade bridge to make an access road for the Wawa extension project. About 100 feet of track was removed.
