Philadelphia Suburban 80, northbound passing Lackawanna Station on Saturday afternoon. The area behind the trolley was once the yard behind the Scranton Laurel Line station. Lackawanna Station looms in the background.

Philadelphia Suburban 80 southbound at south end of Laurel Line tunnel yesterday afternoon. We also saw people stealing ballast from along the tracks here while we waited for the trolley. They said they needed it for their backyard pond. They had small children with them, I had to warn them to get their kids off the tracks before the trolley came. They may be possible Darwin Award contenders.

I'm guessing 76 took some damage this time...

I'm guessing it did as well, it didn't look all that serious> I assumed it was a track problem due to the heavy rain, but maybe not. 76 was up and running pretty quickly after last summers derailment by the Iron Furnaces. Hope to see it running again soon, but it is a treat seeing 80 since we don't see that as often.

Frank, my guess is that they are getting used to you being trackside with your camera.

Philadelphia Suburban 76 northbound, approaching the I-81 Cemetery Bridges. This has a slightly better view of the remains of the Meadow Lake Road bridge abutment. This is about a mile south of the Laurel Line tunnel.

The Saint Mary's Tunnel in South Scranton is being re-named the Edward S. Miller Tunnel, and there will be an historic marker erected near the tunnel. Dedication ceremonies will be on Saturday, October 15.  A special trolley is being chartered to the dedication ceremony on that day, with a reception at the Lackawanna Historical Society.

Bad news guys!!
  One of the last icons left of the L&WV will soon be no more.A coal reclaimation outfit is starting to dig out the back of the south abutment of the Heidelberg Viaduct in Avoca.I went home to get my camera,but it started pouring rain on the way out..I'll try to get one last pic tomorrow..Here's a shot I took on a gloomy day a few years ago..

Not sure what's up,but now they're doing work on the north pier,but it may only be cleaning it up.Someone is using a Bobcat to clear up all the trees and brush,maybe someone is putting a house up there? On the south pier,the coal guys have dug down maybe 4 feet below the back of the top of the pier,and are using the area as a loading/staging area.I have to believe that sooner or later,the whole mountain will be gone.The original roadbed along the entire stretch where the Pittston By-Pass is was dug out because the entire area underneath was low grade coal,the area behind the pier has to be coal,also.That's also where the old raised roadbed in Pittston across Oak Street went,the entire 40 foot high roadbed was all low grade coal. I took pics,but can't find my USB cable to download them...
