Our route is part of the old Pennsylvania Railroad central division on the West Chester and Phoenixville branch. Historic stations along the way are the Westtown station, now an art gallery, which is located next to the new Westtown Township Park; the 19th century village and station at Cheyney, which is also home to one of the nation’s oldest African American universities; Locksley Station, which is near one of the oldest iron slitting mill sites in the country and the Frazier Farmstead of Revolutionary War fame; and finally the picturesque village of Glen Mills with its restored Victorian station. It is believed that the station may have been designed by the noted Philadelphia architect, Frank Furness.
