Morton, also known as Morton-Rutledge, is a station along the SEPTA Regional Rail R3 line, the former Pennsylvania Railroad West Chester Line. It is located at Yale & Morton Avenues west of PA 420 in Morton, PA 19070. The south, in-bound platform of the station is in Morton Borough while the north, out-bound side is in Springfield Township.[1] Both dollar-a-day and permit parking are available.

Morton Station was originally built in 1867 for the West Chester and Philadelphia Railroad. It was rebuilt in 1880 by architect Joseph Wilson of the Wilson Brothers architectural firm (although some have mistakenly credited the building to Frank Furness) for the Pennsylvania Railroad.[2] The second station is believed to have been designed in a manner similar to that of Glen Mills (PRR station), which is now owned by the West Chester Railroad. In 1892, PRR added a westbound passenger shelter. A former freight house built in 1879 exists 50 feet west of the station house, both of which are maintained by the Morton Station Preservation Committee.[3][4]

On May 28, 2009, Septa approved a $2.6 million dollar rehabilitation effort for Morton Station.[5]
