Wordless Wednesday #156

North of Dillonvale on the NYC's LEA&W Branch was Hanna Coal's Piney Fork Mine. Cars were exchanged between the W&LE and NYC at Dillonvale, sometimes coal was sent to be washed at Piney Fork. Note the different sizes of coal being loaded. March 1946

  1. Chip Syme gave a great talk on the LEA&W Piney Fork branch at the NYCSHS convention this past weekend. It was a much bigger operation than I imagined. It is a virtually unknown portion of the NYC.
