D&H Scranton-Carbondale

Postby TB Diamond » Sat Jan 26, 2008 1:17 am

An article in the January 12, 1985 issue of the Towanda, PA Daily Review stated that the Lackawanna County Railroad Authority had signed a $1.55 million agreement to purchase 24 miles of the Delaware & Hudson Railway's former MT from Scranton to Carbondale.

Did this purchase become reality? If so, is the track still in service and who is the operator?

Yes it did.

I live a block away from those tracks and since I have lived there I have seen increased activity and repairs to the tracks. A train runs up the line about three times a week now.
