Lets see if NKP759 can get this one, though I am sure he'll have no problem..........

Hmm, definetly the Scranton to Carbondale "miners local". Judging by the bridge, I'm going to say either Carbondale, olyphant, or green ridge section of Scranton. They all had bridges similar to this at the locations. That's my best guess haha

Well, since Carbondale was your first guess, I will have to say you got it, sir!
 
I am not 100% sure WHERE in Carbondale, but I am suspecting this is the double bridge over the Lackawanna River, just RR west of the  Rt. 6 crossing, one bridge of which is still there, used by the D-L. BTW, the info I have shows the date as 1951.

LOL, I had to look that location up, Matthew! Nope, this is on the D&H proper....Here, I'll open the photo up a little, even though I think it'll become painfully obvious where this is once I do......

You know what Matthew? I'll give it to you! This is Hadley, NY, just ever so slightly north and west of Northumberland, NY (no more than an hour or two away is considered "close enough" for me!).......I THINK the photo above was taken on the branch to Lake George (assuming I am reading the D&H system map I have handy correctly!), but then again, the photo could be mislabled!
 
Any, that's the fun of the game!

Thanks! I was guessing from memory, as there is a park near on the river near that location. I was there about 5 years ago.
