This old "KEMPS" sign is all that remains here today. The double track was removed by the Chessie System in the 1980's along with all the signals. There is a short industrial track just west of the road crossing at Kemps that once served some businesses. The businesses are served by trucks today. Kemps is located midway up the 1.75% grade on Williamsport Hill. Trains speeding west past Williamsport usually are slowed to a crawl by the time they reach Kemps as there entire train is now on the Hill.
