The Chimney at the Penn Coach Yard, right behind 30th Street Station, was brought down Sunday morning.

Demolition crews imploded the 425-foot chimney.

The implosion temporarily disrupted traffic in the area. All roads have since reopened.

The West Philadelphia Steam Plant and Pullman and General Service Building are slated for demolition over the next few months. The implosion of the plant's chimney is part of the demolition.
