An abandoned stretch of what was once known as Nay Aug Falls & Elmhurst Boulevard, from last Sunday.

A short distance from the abutment below is this one. They are pretty close together, and may be related.

Laurel Line: Dunmore Branch

We never figured out what this stone abutment is from. It's along the Laurel Line's Dunmore Branch in Nay Aug Park, high above the Lackawanna Railroad's bridge over Roaring Brook, near the west end of Nay Aug Tunnel. Judging by the age of the stonework, it would seem to predate the Laurel Line which was constructed in 1905.

Laurel Line: Dunmore Branch

On Sunday we stopped by this small chunk of the Laurel Line's Dunmore Branch at Nay Aug Park. This branch was abandoned in late 1945, and most of it was later buried by Interstate 81. However a few small stretches remain.
