In this view, a vignette from a larger glass plate negative of St. Davids train station, a porter awaits an oncoming train. The locomotive is westbound, heading towards Paoli. On the left edge is the baggage building, now long gone, and behind it is the passenger platform shelter.
This shelter still remains, and is subject to a planned restoration by the Friends of St. Davids Station (link to stdavidsstation.org). In the distance is a large water tank that stood between Radnor and St. Davids Stations.
The author of this column will be speaking about St. Davids and the other 17 stations of the Main Line, Tuesday evening (January 8) at 7:30 in the Winsor Room of the Radnor Memorial Library.
