Here are so maps and photos of the Lehigh Valley's State Line & Sullivan Branch from Bradford and Sullivan counties, I spent many a summer on my uncle's farm in Dushore and attended the Forksville Fair on Labor Day weekend. First up is a map segment of Bradford County (Towanda to Monroe)

thanks for the wonderful photographs.  would love to see someone who lives up there take some photos of "what it looks like now"as was done so well on this forum with the BQ branch in Allentown.  I was up in Bernice about 5 years ago, and couldn't find a trace that a railroad ever went through.

Dushore Station facing railroad north.  The trestle would have been behind me about 250 feet.  The car is of Reading RR heritage and home to a little store.  A few other pieces of railroad heritage are scattered about, although likely not of LVRR heritage.
