Here's an interesting little bit of info about this pic.I asked Ed Miller about it,he said"Yeah,I remember it,I took it on a holiday weekend at the Glen,I think it was Labor Day.."..Why did I ask about this pic in particular? Well..........The woman with the dark hair walking toward the coach is my mother in law!!! The kid walking towards her is my wife's uncle Paul,the woman in the white dress looking in her purse is my wife's aunt Vicky,and the old lady walking away from them is my wife's grandmother.Just to make sure we were right,I sent a copy of the pic to her uncle Paul..He said"Well,nice picture of the Szydlik's at Rocky Glen,but where the heck did you find it? I've never seen it before,nobody I know took it.."This same pic is hanging in the Trolley museum in Scranton.All the people in the shot are deceased except for Paul,he's a NASA physicist,in his mid 70's...

That's cool being able to identify people in that photo. That Rocky Glen photo is almost an iconic image. I wonder if that was the first time it was published.
 
I'd like to find a copy of the William Ellis - Ed Miller Laurel Line story in ERA Headlights from December 1949. I don't think I've ever seen a copy of that publication, much less that article. I suspect there may be other stories in Railroad, especially from before the war. Steve Maguire was the longtime Transit Topics writer in Railroad, he also took a lot of photos of various interurban/trolley lines throughout the country.

It is sad news to report that Ed Miller has passed away this morning at the age of 90 at the hospice unit of Geisinger Soth Wilkes-Barre. Ed joins the Laurel Line in the fallen.
 
No details of arrangements are known.

That is sad news I only met him a couple times on the trolley, he was certainly an interesting person.

Rest in Peace Ed. Great guy. Wish I got a chance to speak to him. We,ve lost a great historian and railfan. Will say a prayer for him.
