Towards the back side of the ruins is this circular area, with some loose bricks laying around. I'm thinking this was either a smokestack, or maybe some kind of water retention pond for the boilers.

Yesterday we spotted this unusual piece of equipment along the Lackawanna tracks by the Petersburg Silk Mill. It's a small trailer on flanged wheels, used to haul ties. The railroad is replacing a number of ties along the line, and this must be what they use to haul them around.

Last Sunday we spotted this stone foundation the the Watres Addition of Nay Aug Park. Not sure what this is from, but it's on a rather small square footprint, just south of the stone lined pathway that runs up from the Erie tracks.

Yesterday we caught these D-L locomotives running light, headed east along the DL&W mainline. This view is from the Erie's Wyoming Division. I-81 is visible at the bottom, and Scranton's Petersburg neighborhood is in the background. The locomotives are about to cross Myrtle Street.

About a half hour later, we caught the trolley headed northbound, crossing the Stafford Meadow Brook Bridge. This bridge is just south of milepost 3.

Among the ruins of the plane, are the remains of an old shack. The shack doesn't fit in with the rest of the ruins. I'm wondering if this shack was where one of the more reclusive residents of Scranton once lived.

A view of the walkway that led down from the station, to the passageway under the tracks. The park would be on the right, and the station on the left. Evident is illegal dumping which is unfortunetly prevelant in the area.

This is the remaining stretch of Laurel Line right-of-way near the Luna Park station. Luna Park closed at the end of the 1916 season, and the Dunmore Branch was abandoned at the end of 1945. This view is looking north. The top of each end of the passageway under the tracks can be seen to the right and left of the tire pile.
