Sounds about right. I was up there for the first time yesterday and the majority of the equipment's in good shape.

I did take some pictures, but your link pretty much covers it.

I just read a newspaper article that the dismantled bridge over the highway at White Deer will be reassembled for new freight traffic.

A pic of the bridge is here:

Do you have a link to this article ? because there's not much of a line after the station. most of it is in rough condition and no doubt it got hit hard with the recent flooding.

The line is now being rebuilt north of the White Deer station at Allenwood.
