End of the Line

The former Lehigh Valley line from Harford Mills to Dryden, 5.6 miles, was abandoned January 5, 1979. Here is the D&H local standing at Route 221 with end-of-track barrier in foreground. The actual end-of-track was behind the camera position a few hundred feet or so, Oct. 6, 1980. The new-of-track at Route 221 was Sept. 30, 2016. Photo by Paul Templeton.

After the Lehigh Valley went into Conrail on April 1, 1976, Conrail continued to operate the former Lehigh Valley line from Owego to Moravia. This photo was taken by Paul Templeton on May 26, 1976 at Moravia.  The service was discontinued on August 31, 1976. Service continued from Dryden to Locke until February 28, 1978.
