Things have been so quiet lately, and there have been so few chances for Mandy to get out and about, that this July 4 I've dug into my archives again...ferroequinologists may enjoy this one.
From a trip to Nicholson PA (Wyoming County) back in 1989, here is a picture of Tunkhannock (Creek) Viaduct, sometimes referred to as the 9th Wonder of the World.
This reinforced concrete structure was the largest of its kind ever
built when it was created in 1915 on the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Railroad. The bridge, 2,375 feet long and rising 240 feet above
Tunkhannock Creek, was the focal point of a 39.6-mile relocation between
Clarks Summit and Hallstead, and remains in use today.
Does it still look like this? The videos on You-Tube say yes...and this picture proves the lower bar on the K in Lackawanna fell off some time prior to 1989. Maybe someday I'll get there to check it out again myself...and hopefully this time, in a dress!
