Ore Pier at Port Richmond Rail

Ore Pier at Port Richmond Rail Yards is a last vestige of the once-great Richmond Coal Wharves. Extending 875 feet into the river Pier 18 carries two railroad tracks and was used for the loading of coal and ore. The now-defunct Richmond Coal Wharves encompass a mile of shoreline and 12 abandoned piers. It was once the primary terminal for Pennsylvania’s vast coal output.
