Looking at some pictures of the Zinc Factory in Palmerton.  These are from 07.11.00 - when I had a day off and first went to Jim Thorpe.

The mountians in the background have been defoiliated from the smoke coming from the plant. There was a picture of this plant in one of the Morningsun LV RR books.

To the best of my knowledge the main building has been demolished.

Tidbit :

From 1991 CONRAIL Timetable :

Taylor Secondary Track 

Distance from Hoboken 

136.7  TAYLOR (D&H Railway) 
139.7  OLD FORGE 
  (Lehigh Sec and 
  Pocono Northeast RR)  

(Why is the distance 
listed as distance 
from Hoboken, since
trains have not run 
to Hoboken in many,
 many years ???)
