Here are some shots of the former CNJ Nesquehoning Tower.  The rail line next to it has been put back in service and a rail to trail now connects Downtown Jim Thorpe with the trail system at Lehigh Gorge State Park. 

The other, earlier shots I have from this had been taken from an Rail Tours trains in the late 1990s.   The line was on the other side of the tower.
