    Default Delaware Lackawanna Pocono Main

    And so it begins.... I've started work on the DL's Pocono Main Line from Scranton to Slateford. This also includes the Portland Wye and interchange with the Norfolk Southern.



    Here's a picture to get us started, You can see I have the track all laid out within Steamtown National Historic Site.

    That's going to be a great route. Take your time and stay focused because there's lots of railroads in that area besides the DL&W.

    Edit: I just noticed that you live in the area so you should know that!

    That sounds awesome, will you post it to the DLS or a website or keep it private?

    You might want to talk to blackdiamond1964. He's making the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley RR for Trainz and made several buildings in the Scranton area as they looked in the 1950s that still exist. He might be willing to help you out with modifying those buildings to look like how they look today.

    I started this route but never finished it. Are you using the DLS dem or your own? A Steamtown route would be great in Trainz. The DLS dem stops past Tobyhanna, though. How far are you going with your route? Are you going to Carbondale as well? Steamtown occasionally operates train rides on that line as well. Steam will be running to Archbald this month, the #26 on a public excursion. I hope you finish it so that we can enjoy it. Maybe do the trolley line to the ballpark as well. Bendorsey (he passed away) made the DL&W Scranton station a while back, and there are some road and rail bridges from Scranton as well.

    It's my own DEM and it includes all the way from Scranton to Portland PA. I plan on doing the whole line and include small parts of the Carbondale line to get to the engine shop and Greenridge yard since the DEM covers that.

    Cool Newly built Dame looks really good......

    Havn't been here in a bit, just got a chance to see the rest of your pics,

    I really like the Dam you made with effects, I love water Shots, in Routes, they add a lot of visual Contrast........Things look like they are really coming along nicely.

    Thank you for sharing.......Your dedication shows....

    Mill St. in Dunmore is coming along. Here is a mostly complete picture of the Dunmore Health Care Center.

    Then just down the hill behind the health care center we see the main line bridging over a usually dry creek bed. Only during extreme high water does this see any water travel under this bridge.
