Unknown Building

There was/is a building opposite the steel plant. What was its role? Someone suggested it was related to the plant supplying the town with gas as a by-product from the blast furnace process.

Todd Treaster believes this plant was still shipping 20-30 cars a day through the 1950s.

Standard Steel continues operations today.

YA Block Station

YA Block Station; listed in 1911 Sunbury Division ETT at 4.4 miles from KA.

A photograph of a block station is on page 116 of Lewistown and the Pennsyvania Railroad (PRRT&HS).

It is not indicated on the 1919 track chart.

J. M. Yeager No. 1

Yeager's was a mill on a hill up above the railroad. The 1945 CT1000 indicates one siding for this industry, but the valuation maps show two. One is known to be a warehouse (plans coming).

Owned by the Yeager milling family, this was some sort of coal/lumber/building materials dealer on the west (left) side of the tracks across the street (and tracks) from where the Hammermill Inn is today. The area is now overgrown and the siding removed. I have elevation drawings of the building. Visible in 1957 Penn Pilot photo.

J. M. Yeager No. 2

Listed in 1945 CT1000.

Also owned by the Yeager family, this was also on the left side of the tracks. I have no idea what was here, but today there is a newer building that I'm told has had several tenants; at one time a trucking company. It currently houses a phone company.
