Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Southampton Railroad Station Society to restore and preserve the historic Victorian Era railroad station situated in the heart of Upper Southampton Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and located along the former Philadelphia & Reading Railroad's Rail Line between the communities of Fox Chase and Newtown.


In 2007, the Southampton Railroad Station Society--or SRRSS--was formed as a nonprofit (501(c)(3)) for the express purpose of restoring, preserving, and utilizing the Victorian Era railroad station located on the former Philadelphia & Reading Railroad's Newtown Branch Rail Line in Upper Southampton Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

After passenger service at the station discontinued in 1983, both the historic building and surrounding property were left unused for decades, gradually falling into its current state of serious disrepair. The Southampton Station remains today as one of three surviving historic station buildings along the once-vibrant Newtown-Fox Chase Rail Corridor.

Today, the SRRSS board members--along with resident volunteers--continue in their efforts to the protection and restoration of the railroad station and site as a proposed heritage center for the surrounding community. Phase I of the SRRSS's goals consists of stabilizing the station structure. The detailed plans for full scale interior and exterior restoration will begin with Phase II.

Would you recommend Southampton Railroad Station Society?

by Arthur M. (February 14, 2014)
Group is useless, myopic, dwells on minutae and has accomplished nothing in its 7 years of existence. Attended several meetings and evening photo shoot, the latter which was relatively enjoyable. Meetings are led at snail's pace; meeting topics rarely address actual restoration efforts. President Jim Day is sorely miscast as president. Do not waste time with this organization; they are spinning their wheels. Unsure as to why Upper Southampton Township allows them access to site.
