Relive the heritage of Northeastern Pennsylvania through the story of a little-known branch of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. Usually earning no more than a brief mention in railroad histories, the Winton Branch was much more than a historical footnote. Built to haul coal, for more than 80 years it serviced the mines of Dunmore and Jessup, an area that once played host to an astonishing number of railroads including the Erie, Delaware and Hudson, New York Susquehanna & Western and New York Ontario & Western as well as the lesser-known Moosic Mountain & Carbondale and Grassy Island. Experience the successes and failures of the region’s early entrepreneurs as they worked to provide anthracite coal to power the industrial revolution. Although the mines and railroads are long gone, what remains are seven miles of exciting history documented here in one place for the first time.
