Does anyone know where this station was located (streetwise) and if there are any signs of its existence today? 1949 TT lists a Saturday only mixed train on this line, but curiously not a turn (trains met on the line). Any info on operations?? Thanks in advance.

The station was located on Prince Street in what is now the Parking Lot for Clipper Magazine Stadium. The station is long gone, the freight house outlived it but was burned down by a homeless person trying to stay warm. The Stiegel Valley Model Railroad Club models this portion of the Reading line and has pictures of their layout, including the model of Lancaster Station on a website at http://www.tonysegro.com/svrr.html.
