SIA Philadelphia Car Barn Tour:

Erie Substation
No longer in service, Erie Substation is located just southeast of the corner
of Erie Avenue and Germantown Avenue.
It was constructed in 1899 as a power generating station.
Later, three 1500 kilowatt converters supplied 600 volts DC for the trolley system.
