Dan Christ is an artist local to Kempton, Pennsylvania. He specializes in wildlife paintings, but took some time out to paint a few scenes along the WK&S. These historic paintings depict the area during the early half of the twentieth century.
The next three images depict the small town of Trexler, about a half a mile north of Kempton. Again looking north, the train is heading south toward Kempton and then on to Reading. As with Kempton, the Trexler station (to the right of the steam locomotive) no longer exists, but everything else looks about the same. In 2001 Trexler was voted onto the registry of National Historic Districts. The log home to the left of the train dates to the late 1700s. The Grain & Feed Warehouse behind the box cars is now home to the Albay Township Historical Society. For more information on Trexler and surrounding Albany Township, take a look at their web site.
