Talky Tuesday #61

A  S&NY freight makes up a train at north Towanda in last week’s “WW #102”. The train is made up of a long string of various gondolas with numerous crates. Wonder if they are all headed for the same destination?

In the background are the old Lehigh Valley enginehouse and water tanks, the LV Towanda station, and the LV mainline coaling tower. To the right is the bridge carrying the LV main over the north branch of the Susquehanna River. To the left, a LV derrick is spotted, along with several empty gons. The piles of track components on the ground suggest the LV may have a major track improvement project underway somewhere nearby. The coaling tower was built circa 1940, and the track project may be related to that. Perhaps some LV expert somewhere has the answer…
