Plans have been drawn up for an expanded Paoli station on the site of the former Pennsylvania Railroad/Amtrak/SEPTA train shed and repair facility. [http://www.tredyffrin.org/departments/community/planning/paoli-master-plan/ptc.aspx] This facility was contaminated with PCBs; cleanup of the shed property where the future station may stand was completed in 2005 as a Superfund project.
