Shamokin Valley Railroad Company

Shamokin Valley Railroad Northumberland, PA - The antecedents of our Shamokin Valley Railroad (established 1984) date back 183 years. The Danville & Pottsville RR was incorporated in 1826, and finished construction between Sunbury and Shamokin in 1838. This company became the Philadelphia & Sunbury RR in 1851, and in 1858 the line became the Shamokin Valley & Pottsville RR. The SV&P was leased by the Northern Central Rwy. in 1883, thence passed to the PRR’s control, but continued its separate corporate existence under until acquired by Conrail in 1976. When the line was sold in 1984, SEDA-COG acquired it to maintain rail service in Northumberland County and the Shamokin Valley Railroad was incorporated as the operating company. The west twelve miles of the Shamokin Valley RR, between Sunbury and Reed, utilizes the former Reading Company’s alignment (opened 1883 as the Shamokin, Sunbury & Lewisburg RR.
