No front plates on the cars, so it's in PA.

Coxton Yard in Pittston. Looking east almost from the roundhouse. The light tower, concrete fuel pad and foundation for the big tank are still visible on Google satellite pics. Remnants of the sand tower and some of the service tracks were still there in the early 90s. Been there plenty of times.
