Sorry Scott! I confuse easily. Below is a photo I found in one of the Morning Sun books that shows from left to right Wilson, the Laurel Line Freight house and Swift buildings.

The show the Lehigh Beef building. It was next to the Wilson building. I believe it used part of the old covered platform that extended from the Freight House. I remember seeing a color photo showing this building but cannot find it.

Here is a question for the Laurel Line fans out there. I'm working on building a 3D model of the Spring Brook Bridge that once stood in Moosic around the Rocky Glen area. I'm finding very few photos of this bridge. My question is...Did this bridge have 2 spans on it, or 3 spans? The few picture I have and aerial photos are inconclusive. Does anybody know?

Here is something I found for all you Laurel Line fans. It's a 1919 Sanborn fire map of the Laurel Line Carshop and Powerhouse. It shows how the buildings were laid out.

If any of you belong to Facebook, look up "Greater Pittston Historical Society". They have been posting photos of the Laurel Line from their collection. Some nice shots, some of which I have never seen before.

Hi Maurice, I'm the person that has been posting the Laurel Line pictures on the GPHS site. I've been trying to friend you on Facebook but so far I got no reply.

The latest issue of the Anthracite Railroad Historical Society newsletter "Anthracite Extra" lists an upcoming article in their magazine "Flags, Diamonds and Statues" on the Laurel Line Freight operations. Since this is what I hope to model (in HO scale), I am eagerly awaiting it.

Would anybody happen to have an old street map that shows Laurel Junction or the Dunmore branch of the Laurel Line?

Still looking for maps showing the Dunmore Branch!

I've been working on models of the Laurel Line infrastructure. Here is a look at the Scranton Station. I've also made the carshops, Scranton Depot, Standard Beef Building (building in front of the depot) and the small Laurel Line Dispatchers office.
 

 
 
I'm about to make a model of the Laurel Line Powerhouse but I'm coming up short on reference pictures. Anybody have pictures of this structure they would like to share?

Where are all the Laurel Line fans? They seem to be MIA again.
Here is a look at the Wilkes-Barre Station in the 3D world.

In my last post I posted a picture of the Laurel Line's Wilkes-Barre Station. I'd like to make the rest of the L&WV Wilkes-Barre Yard. However finding reference pictures of these buildings is quite the task. The Wilkes-Barre Yard is a topic that came up earlier in this thread. I've been able to located where the building are. Here is a 1959 overview of the yard.
 

 
Does anybody have any reference pictures of this yard or buildings? So far Google has turned up next to nothing.
