Remarks & Notes 
Reading Railroad's Pennington Station

The Reading Railroad built this station back in 1882, three years after it gained lease over the Delaware & Bound Brook Railroad. By the 1900s, roughly 50 trains stopped at the station, carrying mail, passengers and freight from Trenton, Philadelphia and New York and was staffed around the clock by an agent and three clerks. After World War I, automobile ownership rose and the station declined, cutting Sunday services in 1945. By 1962, Reading Railroad had only two trains stopping at the station and in 1967 discontinued service completely. Today, the station serves as a residence while the rail line sees only freight trains operated by CSX.

The station, added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 31, 1974, is similar in style to the Hopewell station, completed in 1876, which was (is) the next stop east.
