Where is this Wednesday #9

Where is this?

 Once again, Dick Bradley provided the answer for last week's Where is it Wednesday.  Here it is:

 This early July 1971 Kodachrome slide is of the northerly side of the Hespenheide & Thompson feed mill brick buildings at Beaver and North streets in the city of York, Pa. Hespenheide & Thompson was served by the NC/PRR/PC until hurricane Agnes severed the line in August 1972. York County obtained the line and the Ma & Pa operated it. The abandoned coal dealer was on the Western Maryland whose tracks are in the foreground. Upon dissolution of the WM by the CSX the line was acquired by Emons and then Ma & Pa and Yorkrail equipment was used on it. It is now the York Railway of Genesee &Wyoming Industries.  Dick Bradley

  1. My Kodachrome slide was made on November 21, 1969 from the sidewalk on the N. Charles Street overpass in Red Lion, Pa. The view is railroad south. At the far end of the track the yellow spot is the Red Lion depot. Hilton, chapter 5, gives the information that the track is upgrade from the depot at 2.5% compensated to reach an elevation of 911 feet under the N. Charles street overpass. That is the highest point on the Ma & Pa. Side views of the overpass are on page 15 of the Winter, 2007, issue of the Ma & Pa 'Timetable'. This right of way in Red Lion is the core of the Ma & Pa Community Greenway, see the links at
