 HISTORY OF THE 'LAUREL LINE' TROLLEY

The Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railroad, more commonly known as the Laurel Line, was a Pennsylvania third rail electric interurban streetcar line which operated commuter train service from 1903 to 1952, and freight service until 1976.

 

Reporting mark

LWV

Locale

Northeastern Pennsylvania

Dates of operation

1903–1976

Track gauge

4 ft 8 12 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge

Headquarters

Scranton, Pennsylvania

  

 The line was originally owned and built by Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Company, a subsidiary of The Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company. Electrification was decommissioned in 1953, as diesel operations began. It was purchased by the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad in 1957, but operated as an independent subsidiary under it and the Erie Lackawanna until its inclusion in Conrail in 1976.

 

Sections of the line operate today for both freight and tourists under local county ownership, with talk of future commuter expansion.

 

The railroad's main line ran from Scranton to Wilkes-Barre. Other cities served included Dunmore and Pittston.

 

At its peak, the line carried as many as 4.2 million passengers a year, but following World War II use declined dramatically.

 

Original sections of the line out of Scranton to Montage Mountain, Moosic, have been purchased by Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, and placed back in service with overhead electrified wiring and designated-operator Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad overseeing both freight operations and the county's tourist trolley runs, the Electric City Trolley Museum.

 

The Laurel Line Tunnel (also known as the Crown Avenue Tunnel) in South Scranton, constructed in 1904, remains one of the longest interurban streetcar tunnels ever built, at 4,750-feet.
