  • Significance: The Wilmington and Northern Railroad built this small repair facility at a time when Wilmington's business community had visions of recapturing its old markets in the agricultural hinterland of Southwestern Pennsylvania. The shop and the activities which took place here were typical of the many small railroads in the country. In tracing the later history of this building, it is possible to see the history of America's East Coast railroads in microcosm.
