Excursion To Jim Thrope Loads in Duryea

An excursion that was a fundrasiser for the Pittston YMCA loads in the parking lot of Weis Market in Duryea.

Probably the first time Steam was on these rails in a long time.

An older man told me he lives up the hill and heard the train coming in at 9:30 at night with the engine chugging and the steam whistle blowing.  Just like when he was growing up.

The train sits on the former E-L Bloomsburg line.  It will make a backing move to Coxton (Pittston) yard, turn at the wye at Pittston Junction and then head out over the former LV Mountain Cutoff.
