Remarks & Notes 
An Amtrak Keystone train, led by an ACS-64, makes an early morning arrival at the 1906 built Parkesburg station.

The station originally had a center tower incorporated into the roof which has since been removed. Until 1990, Parkesburg station was the western-most stop for the SEPTA commuter Paoli /Thorndale line. 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. 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.
