Heading into the big cut. After having been up and down these tracks dozens of times, things are drastically different. You can compare this photo of the cut with at least a dozen other ones on here taken over the last couple years.

Later in the day we stopped off at River Street. This is the area at MP13, which is visible just left of center. The brush has been cut back going down to about MP12.6. The path along the tracks has been turned into a dirt road. This area is quite different then it was six weeks ago.
Took a hike yesterday with a friend down the Erie, from above Rock Junction to near MP16. So far this seems to be to extent of the pipeline work. This would be about on the northern end of the scrapyard. We didn't want to follow the tracks beyond this point.

This is an access road built from a lot off of route 307. The tracks are barely visible. This is just east of where that big pile of junk was, a portion of which is still visible, just below that stack of pipes near the center of the photo.

We took our first trip up the Erie in six weeks. There appears to be some sort of pipeline being built along the tracks. The area now looks a lot different then it did just a few weeks ago. This would roughly be at about milepost 14.5.

A view of the Huber Breaker in Ashley, from about 10 years ago. This breaker, once owned by the Glen Alden Corporation opened in 1939, and was last operated in 1976. I have more views of this on my other site:

On October 16, 1958 the Biggest Show of Stars tour rolled into Scranton. This must have been one of the earlier Rock and Roll shows to play Scranton. The bill reads like a list of Rock and Roll legends. Buddy Holly & the Crickets, this was the last tour with Jerry Allison and Joe B. Mauldin. Clyde McPhatter the lead singer of the original Drifters, The Olympics, Dion & the Belmonts, along with the others. This was the tour where Buddy and Maria drove in their new Cadillac, with Joe B. and Jerry Allison driving a yellow Desoto station wagon.
I'm not 100% certain, but I believe this was the ony time Buddy Holly appeared in Scranton.
I would like to hear from anyone that was at this, or similar shows in Scranton.
