Talky Tuesday #7

Last week’s “Wordless Wednesday” is a shot of the LV interchange at North Towanda. The Federal-style building in the distance is listed as a warehouse on my copy of a 1927 Sanborn map, and may date to the days of the Pennsylvania Canal. Note the long string of Lehigh Valley hoppers on the interchange tracks.

This area is now covered by local industry, though the S&NY tracks faintly seen at the far left along the Susquehanna River still exist as part of the former Towanda-Monroeton Shippers Lifeline rail line, now owned by the Reading and Northern Railroad.
