Remarks & Notes 
Rushland Station. This station was built in 1890 by the Reading Company along its New Hope branch line which terminated at New Hope, home of today's New Hope & Ivy Railroad. The railroad closed the building in 1952. Sadly, it sits today, abandoned and forlorn, lacking the care it had received as "recent" as 2006 when it was in much better shape. Since then, however, the building began to see significant deterioration. Sometime after 2010 I would guess that the two trees seen in the photo took up residence at the station - either with reckless intent, or perhaps by way of seeds carried by the wind. The line sees an occasional freight train, or deadhead move, but rarely, outside of a charter, does it see steam from the New Hope in the form of 2-8-0 No. 40. Captured here at sunrise in April, 2019. Seems odd so few charter pics feature the station though the overhead wires and placement of the modern signal crossings may have played a part in bypassing the station for photo ops.
