Harrisburg Station 1912

The Philadelphia Division maintained its identity over the (then) modern era of the Pennsy. It existed as of 1941 as part of the Eastern Pennsylvania Grand Division. In the 1956 reorganization, it absorbed the Philadelphia Terminal Division to become the Philadelphia Operating Region. In 1964 it was split into the Philadelphia and Harrisburg operating divisions.
