Checking Christopher Baer's compilation of such data, scheduled passenger service was discontinued "Fernwood-Newtown Square - (1/3/08-5/6/1908)".

There were three consecutive issues that covered the Newtown Square and Cardington Branches that were published in the 1990's. I don't have them handy to give you the volume, issue # and date. There was also a reprint that combined all three issues.

ThanksAbout 1938, a streamlined K-4 steam locomotive and passenger train was displayed on the team track at Garret Road. Also in the late 1930s, there were a few "Off The Beaten Path" excursions, some even had dinning cars!
