Talky Tuesday #81

A water tank stands as a lonely sentinel above the remains of the S&NY Towanda yard during abandonment, late Spring 1942 in last week’s “WW #123”. I believe a scrapyard now covers the site, though maybe the concrete footers for the tank might still be found if one knows where to look?

Apologies for last week’s “WW #122”. Turns out it was a duplicate of “WW #36” from 11 March 2015.

There are inevitably some duplicates in my S&NY photo collection, and this was one that slipped through the cracks.

For a description of this photo, see “TT #8” from 17 March 2015.

Apologies for a summer hiatus for travel and the 4th of July. “WW #119” from June 28th is another view of #118 at Towanda. For a similar view from a slightly different angle, see “WW #5”. Time is probably shortly before the 1942 abandonment, as the station/yard office in the background is already boarded up.

#114 pauses at the Towanda ashpit in this early morning (?) view in last week’s “WW #117”. In the background is the Towanda enginehouse/car shop.

Talky Tuesday #74

3 REA wagon-loads of express packages await the next train at the Lehigh Valley Towanda station in last week’s “WW #116”. Hard to say if all that was brought in on the S&NY train (S&NY combination car #206 is in the background) or if it is just parked there for the next LV train. Curious as to what might be in the soft duffle-bags…
