NCR Trail – Train Station


NCR Trail – Train Station at Hanover Junction

I remember riding by this location on bicycle in the late 1990’s. This building looked like it was ready to fall over. It was Dirty, dusty and barely standing!

This train station was saved and rebuilt in the 2005 – 2006 time frame.

Now there is a museum, restroom, soda machine, bulletin board, sculptures, plaques and other items to see and learn about. There is parking at this location. The location can be approached by Car (Pennsylvania Route 616) or by trail!

Check out the York County page on Hanover Junction and Wikipedia’s information on the Railroad Station!

Digital Image of the NCR Trail - Hanover Junction Train Station

Image taken June 9, 2012 – In Pennsylvania, the NCR Trail is also known as the Heritage Rail Trail Park

This image was taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ150K camera. These Panasonic cameras have an Expressive mode that amplifies the colors in images. As you can see from the image below, the colors around the clouds are really drawn out!

There are three Panasonic Cameras that I favor.

Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom – Black

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 4K QFHD/HD Zoom Digital Camera (Black)

These are actually bridge cameras that allow for point and shoot, are simple to use and have very nice features found on the more expensive cameras.
