The Olyphant Heritage Development Strategy
Queen City Station
What was once undeveloped rail land has been transformed into Queen City Station, a community landmark and resource. The station, dedicated October 26th, 1996, provides a gateway to the historic business district of the Borough of Olyphant. At the same time, Queen City Station serves as a loading platform for specific rail excursions and a centrally located stage for special events.
