Another Reading and Northern Pittston - Jim Thorpe post
Author: sscannella

Oh, what the heck, I'll add my $.02...here's the PIJT starting up the former Lehigh Valley mountain cut-off at about 08:50 Saturday morning just moments after departing the new Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Regional Railroad Station at the Reading, Blue Mountain and Northern's Pittston (Former Lehigh Valley Coxton) Yard.

Great images and video. Any idea as to the history of the last car. It reminds me of the Southern Lookout Mountain that was used for many years on Southern Railway excursions.

That IS the former Lookout Mountain. R&N purchased it last year from the Iowa Pacific auction and renamed it Appalachian Trail.
