    Really nice picks this week!

    I would sure like to know more about that R&N photo. The building sign says "------ Yard Office". Wish I could read it!

    Who was/were the original users of this trackage? Perhaps the Lehigh Valley RR? I know that in later years, the D&H was in that area. Probably CP these days?

    The Pittston, PA area was a busy place in the day. It was served by the CNJ, D&H, DL&W, Erie, interurban Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley and LV according to my 1945 Official Guide. The Reading, Blue Mountain & Northern operates former LV and DL&W lines in the Pittston area.

    Yes. Wish they had called out a few more of the original operations. They did state Lehigh Valley RR, but I am thinking there are probably more than just Reading not noted. Such as PRR? Perhaps even a bit of CNJ? L&NE?
