Talky Tuesday #23

S&NY Monroeton station is the subject of last week’s “WW #51”. The track branching behind the station is the Lehigh Valley’s State Line & Sullivan Branch to Dushore and a connection the LV’s Bowman’s Creek Branch at Bernice. The LV bought this portion of the S&NY from Towanda south to Monroeton after the S&NY abandonment to maintain this connection. The photo was probably taken shortly before the abandonment, as the S&NY train order signals are apparently already out of service. A train can be seen following in the distance; possibly another S&NY train, or an LV train headed for the branch.
