Not Richards, nor Treichler's, neither of those locations are very festive.

Interesting clue, which leads me to my third choice.....  
 
Just out of view to the left is Calypso Yard, no?

Hey Ralph, like my great grandpa told me, if you don't have a boat, move the island. The image was poached from ebay, mostly shows the Calypso yard signal bridge and a portion of the yard, it's a pretty nice photo, kinda reminds of something that could be a Clarence Felker.

Clue: Going back to the well again, the line you see was once the main line.

Ah, well with a clue like that, then this leaves us somewhere between Pittston Jct and Gracedale........I'm going with Franklin Jct, though I think the mountains here are too steep/close.

That would be a logical guess. Unfortunately, more of the LV trackage used to be the mainline. I am thinking "coal country" here-maybe the mainline to Mt Carmel. Just my .02 worth.

Hmmm, while I don't disagree with you that this photo was taken in "coal country", wouldn't anything technically "once the mainline" be relegated to a few specific locales? namely -
 
The line between South Plainfield and Perth Amboy (clearly not an option here)
 
The connection to the Erie between Waverly, NY and South Waverly, PA. once used for interchange/coal transfer.  
 
The aforementioned "passenger mainline" from Mt. Top/Gracedale to Wilkes-Barre.  
 
Of course, predecessor RR's like the EC&N, GI&S, SC and the L&M, etc., of whom the LV "absorbed" their mainlines, could also be considered "former mainlines", this reader took the clue to mean LVRR-constructed trackage that had become secondary in nature in the post 1900 era.

My previous reply, while true may be misleading, north of Towanda, would be too far, alas, all other locations are too far south.

Keith nailed it, the photo is from the "Susquehanna & New York Railroad;
Preserving the Memory of a Ghost Railroad" website  
 
http://snyrr.com/category/locations/towanda/page/3/
 
Last week’s “Wordless Wednesday” is a shot of the LV interchange at North Towanda. The Federal-style building in the distance is listed as a warehouse on my copy of a 1927 Sanborn map, and may date to the days of the Pennsylvania Canal. Note the long string of Lehigh Valley hoppers on the interchange tracks.
 
Refer to the red circle on the attached diagram to provide the location in which the photo depicts.
