Station Description and Details

History: The original name for Moscow was Drinker’s Beech, for the abundance of beech trees in an area owned by Henry W. Drinker. The town of Moscow grew from a small tavern and settlement as an expansion of the Philadelphia & Great Bend Turnpike, nicknamed Drinker’s Turnpike. Eventually, Moscow would be cemented as a community when the new Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad built through the town with a station in 1856. With the rail connection, Moscow would continue to grow with various mills, one such mill owned by the Van Brunt family would supply milled lumber to the Steinway Piano Company. In the twentieth century, Moscow would supply workers to the mines in and around Scranton, for which the Lackawanna Railroad would provide a special train nicknamed “the accommodation train” to help miners and railroaders alike commute back and forth. The Victorian style freight and passenger stations were designed by Frank J. Nies and built in 1904.

Today, the station is currently maintained by the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railroad Historical Society . It serves as a destination for the Steamtown National Historic Site Excursions.

Amenities: When excursions return, visitors to the historic station will find a variety of train memorabilia such as historic photos, book/magazines and souvenirs for sale, along with light snacks & beverages and hot dogs.
