P. R. R. PLANS FOR
FREIGHT YARD THERE
BERLIN CELEBRATES ARRIVAL OF WAR TROPHIES
Residents Say Smoke and
Engines Would Ruin Mal
vern Avenue Homes.
Want Road Electrified.
t Residents of overbrook nre making a '
decided stand against the Pennsylvania .
Railroad, which purposes the building
of large freight yards In that suburh i
and the. laying of a new road which
will be used for freight transportation
from Glcnloch and Froier to the Penn
sylvania Railroad wharves at the foot
of Washington avenue, via Overbrook
and B2d street. They say the road ns ,
now planned will ruin the handsome ,
"The railroad was granted a franchise
by the city of Philadelphia for the
parrying out of this plan In 1303. This
expires In 1915. Since the company has
riot begun the v,ork It would ba Im
possible to complete It before the time
limit expires, and therefore the com
pany has applied for an extension on
the permit. The citizen? of Overbrook.
represented In the Overbrook Associa
tion and the Overbrook Club, have made
uch a vigorous protest that the City
Council has Informod the railroad that
It will have to corns to somo undei
standlng with the citizens of that lo
cality before the permit will be ex
tended. That part of the Pennsylvania Rail
road's project which Is most objectionable
to residents of Overbrook Is tho faot
that the new In-coming line will run to
the proposed freight yard along Mal
vern avenue, a handsome residential dis
trict, which would be ruined by the
smoke of the engines that would con
stantly be passing along tho line. Tiie
freight yard, will not be electrified, ac
cording to the plans projected by the
company, and so would ruin, the" resi
dents say, tho extensive resldental de
velopments which are being carried on
between Overbrook and Wynnefield. ;
NOT TO ELECTRIFT YARDS
In referring to this point, John J i
Coylo, president of the Overbrook Asso
ciation, said that the city of Phlladel- ,
phla would lose from $100,000 to SloO.O'iO ,
annually In taxes alone through the j
aeprcciation in value of real estate In
that neighborhood, which would proo
ably be at least 50 per cent. He believes
that tho company's claim that It would
be Impossible to electrify a freight vurd
of such magnitude as theirs Is to bo is
untrue, for he says that not only the
members of the Overbrook Committee,
but also representatives of the City
Council, have visited the electrified yard's
of other cities and are convinced that
the proposition could not only be handled
here, but that it could be profitably
But rather than electrified lines and
freight yards, the people of Overbrook
would have the railroad extend their
present spur line connecting the Waidi
Hngton street wharves with Newtown
Square, via Fernwood. to Glcnloch and
Frazer, cutting out the Overbrook and
52d street yards. This, they claim, could
be done at vastly smaller expense and
at a saving of considerable mileage, and
Incidentally leaving the fashionable resi
dential sections of Overbrook undisturbed.
The railroad's plan as it now stands is
to extend the 52d street yards to Over
brook, eventually laying 100 tracks for
this purpose. These lines would pass
Underneath the Main Line pansenger
tracks at Malvern avenue, and continue
out that nv-nue as a low-grnde line
toward th Newtown Square and Fernwo )d
branch, not Joining that road, however,
but turn'ng north and running directly
to Glenloch and Frazer. The only tun
neling which would be done would be on
that part of Malvern avenue which lies
between the Main Line and tho Blind
Asylum. There would be no means of
crossing the Pennsylvania lines between
52d street and of'th.
CONDEMNS PLAN OF P. R. R.
In commenting on the situation this
morning, John J. Coyle said: "We feel
that the Pennsylvania Railroad has been
granted greater concessions by her na
tive State and city than any other rail
road In the world, and that In return for
these advantages It has not only failed
to show Us appreciation, but has shower
ed favors on other cities and States tf
the exclusion of Philadelphia and Penn
sylvania. It has erected r magnificent
terminal in New York and has electri
fied its lines entering that city : but not
only refuses to do as much for Philadel
phia, but wishes, on the other hand, to
ruin one of the city's finest suburbs."
Yesterday a committee of Overbrook's
citizens visited the scene of the pro
posed changes. They are to report at
a meeting to be held to discuss ways
and means of bringing the railroad to
