Thanks! A lot of time, money and effort has gone into restoring the railroad to operation. I assure you, there is more to come. The official website will be updated as trips are planned and allow you to see when they run and buy tickets online.

Excursion service to Lackawaxen officially resumes this Saturday July 25th details on the website, and Facebook!!
Upright and on the rail any deviation from this is a problem.

On a recent trainwatching outing my sons noticed that the old ChromaTube building in Whites Mills, PA is being rehabilitated. Does anyone know what is moving in? I suppose if it were a rail related business someone would have posted with a very, very happy post by now.

The siding is overgrown still, of course, but the main body of the building is having extensive work done upon it. A fe years ago Al Siebold from M&E pointed me to the place in pursuit of frac sand drying locations, but (as usual) someone backed out of the funding package at the last minute. Al was a great help, though. Hopefully someone with a similar idea, and more stable funding partners, is running with the idea.

The soonest I'll be out in that direction on a weekday, when I might run into a work crew and be able to ask what's up, is Tuesday. I'll let everyone know what I find out.

Well, Google and the Wayne Independent conspired to burst my bubble with great vigor. Turns out a small, rather high priced, woodworking company is moving from thier location in Honesdale to the former Chromatube Plant:

I suppose we could all keep our fingers very tightly crossed that they'll have enough business to justify a bulkhead flat of lumber at a time.

Dang. I could've used some good news.

The good news is that the railroad is running...:-)
