Just an FYI
 
The Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Chapter will have an informative Laurel Line DVD available for sale during the 2010 convention.
 
The production is a DVD slideshow narrated by George Gula of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. There are more than 150 images used in the production with most of the images from Ed Miller's collection. The production is a tribute to Ed.
 
By the way, George Gula was mentored by Ed Miller over the years and is considered to be a Laurel Line Historian by many.

The trolley continues south on it's way to Moosic after it passes the abutments.

Closeup of derailed truck. I'm hoping it gets re-railed soon and is back in action.

Re-rail by practical people, just trying to get the instant job done? Or, does this require months of environmental studies  
and public input meetings, so as to produce a report? <G>

I believe it was just a flag stop.
 
Question for all you LL historians...
I'm wondering if anybody can identify the cluster of buildings marked by the white arrows.

Some of the railbed and the bridge abutments are still there today. I photographed them last year while looking at the Erie's Haines Junction.
