July 16, 2014

On the River Commons, by the Courthouse, across from King's College, is a rail from the Laurel Line.  It used to go along the river, past the courthouse and then make a sharp bend and shoot through what is now the parking lots for King's College and to the Station.   

Some trackage may have also went to the Dorrance Colliery.   The Lehigh Valley RR operated the Dorrance Colliery. 

The Laurel Line trackage was eventually conveyed into CONRAIL and perhaps the last train operated on this in the mid 1980's.
