Boyertown station

Boyertown station was a Reading Railroad station in Boyertown, Pennsylvania on the Pottstown-Barto line that is currently a heritage railroad station serving the Colebrookdale Railroad heritage railroad. The station formerly served a spur of the Pottstown Line which was truncated from the SEPTA's Manayunk/Norristown Line in Norristown.[2] There is currently a small building serving as the ticket house, but there are plans in the works to build a grand 8000 square foot station that would serve as the main station with a restaurant. Once that is complete the current station will turn into a bike rental.
