We came across this unusual sight in the Watres addition to Nay Aug Park yesterday. This area was never developed, but there is this bench, next to a rotting picnic table. We also saw some wild turkeys in this area, probably joyous that Thanksgiving is over.

Just below the ruins of the complex on the hill, the plane must have came up through this cut. We followed it part of the way down, but it was on the muddy side, and we worried we might not have a way out at the bottom.
A big find today. We hiked up above that stone wall/foundation north of Milepost 12, and found what appears to be the remains of Pennsylvania Coal Company railroad; Plane No.5. Quite a large complex they had up here.

This is the "subway" under the Laurel Line tracks at the Luna Park station. The Laurel Line spent over $7,000 to add this station to the Dunmore Branch in the spring of 1906. Ridership, and park attendance, never reached the levels predicted and the park closed at the end of the 1916 season. It still looked like fall back here yesterday, dispite all the snow.

Philadelphia Suburban no.76 at the boarding platform. Usually we're down in the Meadow Brook Valley when we see this. This is where the trolley begins/ends its run to Montage Mountain and the Lackawanna County Stadium. Visiting Amtrak equipment is on the right, and Bridge 60 Interlocking can be seen at the far end of the boarding platform.

This is part of a bridge abutment that carried Nay Aug Falls & Elmhurst Boulevard over the Erie tracks at mile 14.10. Unfortunetly that would put the elusive milepost 14 under a pile of debris that has been dumped from an empty lot off Route 307.

I'm not sure what this is. It's on the Luna Park grounds, in the north-west corner, just above the DL&W tracks. On a map of the park, this would be where the Scenic Railway curved. I'm not sure if this is part of that, or something else.

We made a return trip to Luna Park today. We haven't been here since last fall, this is the base of the footbridge on the Luna Park side of Roaring Brook. Someone has placed some kind of dog statue on top of the base.

A view of the old bridge abutments. I'm not sure why there is that long platform on the left. The Laurel Line had a station around here, on the left, somewhere just behind the pole. Also visible are remains of the second track, just to the left of the existing one.
