Steel rails

Trains still hold an allure for many.

By David Sutor

They come from all across Pennsylvania, states near and far, and even other continents - Europe, Asia and Australia - to sit on The Station Inn's wooden porch and pass the hours watching trains roll along the tracks. Many return year after year.

Stories are told. Drinks and meals are shared. Photographs are snapped. Days are lazily rocked away. Memories are evoked. All on the porch. "Whenever I think of coming down to this place in particular, I always think about this porch," says Randy Bogucki, a Bridgeville, Pennsylvania resident, when visiting the bed and breakfast, located in Cresson, one recent sunny June weekend. "I think the first time I came down here I really didn't know what to expect. I thought it was like a little Holiday Inn or something next to the tracks. It was a little more casual, laid back. I think the second year I came, the vision I had in my head was just to put my feet up on this banister and just watch trains go by."
Close bonds are formed, too. "It's kind of like a brotherhood," says Bob Korthals, who lives in Hamburg, New York.
