A friend of mine is loosely modeling the LV(early CR era) from Athens to Pittston.
We were out there last Saturday & Sunday looking around trying to get a better
fell for the former Masonite plant and Osram-Sylvania.

Anyone have any pictures or a link showing what Towanda Wholesale's building
looked like?

Or what Ingersall-Rand, National Supply in Athens looked like?

Is the line to Monroeton actually active anymore?

It looks like Historic Aerials has Towanda back to 1952, which might help a bit.

Reading & Northern bought out the TM-SL a while back I think expecting to see some traffic from the fracking boom.
