Stations on Reading's Grenloch Branch

Post by David » Sun Aug 01, 2004 12:00 pm

Looking for pictures of the Glendora and Bellmawr Stations on the Grenloch Branch. I have pictures of the Mount Ephraim Station (My Avatar), Runnemede, Blackwood, Glenloch and Gloucester stations. Maybe someone with some old Reading knowledge can find something :) --Thanks

Is this branch the overgrown ROW with the green power lines that passes under 42 south just before the Blackwood/Clementon exit?

Yes Limejuice, it is. The line is active to the NJ Turnpike in Runnemede. It goes under 42 (no tracks, soon to be a rail trail). That is the Blackwood/Blenheim area.

Many thanks! This morning, we were at a motel in Runnemede and I decided to look at a right-of-way that seemed to parallel Black Horse Pike. Thanks for identifying it as as a Reading branch.

The line parallels Black Horse Pike all the way to its end in Grenloch. Parts of it all through Blackwood and now parts of Blenheim have become a nice rail-trail. Another segment is completed in Runnemede. Plans call for all of the abandoned part to be converted. The active portion includes the towns of Gloucester City, Mount Ephraim and Bellmawr.

If you can locate a copy, there are photos of the stations in Benjamin Bernhart's (sp?) Reading Station Pictorial books. I forget what volume, maybe the one that includes G? The books are arranged by branchline name, so the Grenloch would be in the volume including G. I grew up in Bellmawr and plan to include a model of the station on my model railroad.
