Allentown and Auburn question

Postby frankgaron2 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:24 pm

It's a long shot but any chance anybody knows the exact route of the former Allentown and Auburn railroad west of Port Clinton where it crosses the Schuylkill River and heads towards Auburn?

I've been able to trace it to the eastern bank of the Schuylkill River a few miles west of Port Clinton and from there it seems to vanish into thin air. I literally have no idea what the alignment would've been from there on into Auburn.

We've been able to field inspect most all of the line from Allentown to Auburn with the exception of the last mile or so. You'd be surprised at how much of the right-of-way there still is to see.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, maps, photos, you name it!
