Welcome to the Fernwood - Yeadon Station on the SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line.
The Fernwood - Yeadon Station of the SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line serves the adjacent communties of Yeadon, Upper Darby, and East Lansdowne PA. The station itself is located on the border between Yeadon and Upper Darby and is just one block south of East Lansdowne. This location provides easy access to Church Lane heading north and south and to Baltimore Pike heading east or west. This is the first rail stop in Delaware County as you head west from Philadelphia.
The platforms are located just below the Church Lane bridge as it passes over the R3 Tracks. There is no dedicated SEPTA parking per-se but there are limited long-term parking meters on the east bound(south side) of the tracks. (and they come with friendly but attentive Yeadon Police supervision - feed the meters). There are stairs going up to Church Lane from both sides of the stop and a direct cross walk between platforms at track level. The video will provide a better overview:
This station does serve the three separate communities of Yeadon, a small part of southern Upper Darby, and East Lansdowne. In general, the real estate activity throughout the immediate area has been similar to that seen throughout Delaware County with activity peaking in 2004/2005 and prices topping out in 2007. Complete details will be covered in separate posts for each area.
OPEN HOUSE Sunday March 7 12-2. If you are currently considering moving in the area, be sure to take the time to visit 59 Penn Blvd in East Lansdowne. This is a great 4 BR/1.2BA Straight-Through Twin including many updates.
