I agree Keith, it must be Packerton Jct, can see the old CNJ grade on the opposite side.

Ok, we have to solve this one before too much of that Old Heidleberg disappears... Being an Upstate NY guy, I'm a bit shaky on my Pennsylvania locations, but this looks to me like it's somewhere in the Wilkes-Barre mountains. Is that getting warm?
 
BTW, thanks for reviving this nearly dormant thread!

Charlie, I was thinking Laurel Run too, but I'm not sure the curve is the right way. Perhaps Gracedale?

I think you might have gotten it, Bob.......now that you mention it, it reminds me of a Mike Bednar shot where a train on the CNJ side was stalled at or very near this location.

Old Heidleberg,eh? That makes me think that this picture was taken from the Rt 11 bridge near the Heidleberg colliery. That would be Dupont.

Bethlehem and Hazleton are very fine places, but you must travel east to reveal where this space is.
