Remarks & Notes 
Parkesburg Station - former Pennsylvania Railroad, built in 1906 The station was at one time the western-most stop for the SEPTA commuter Paoli /Thorndale line until 1990. It was truncated to Downingtown in November 1996 because of the need for trains to deadhead to Lancaster to turn around. It has since been re-extended to Thorndale, a few miles west of Downingtown. Today, only Amtrak's Keystone trains stop here, though there is no ticket office and the station is not in operation today. The distance between Parkesburg and the next westbound station (Lancaster) is the longest distance between stations (23 miles) anywhere within the Pennsylvania section of the Keystone Service.

In 1984, the station appeared in the movie Witness.
