Notes About Existing Stations...

Nicholson (DL&W) - This station is the original wood building on the "old" mainline (which is nowRoute 11). This building was originally a combination passenger and freight station. Similar story to Clarks Summit, except that the DL&W did construct a concrete station on the new line at Nicholson at the west end of Tunkhannock Viaduct (it has been gone for several years). At that time (1915) the "old" station became converted to "freight only" with a separate agent, and over the years, lost much of its passenger station appearance. For more info see the Nicholson Heritage web site.

Noxen (LV) - The station was in a very dilapidated condition. The roof had caved in over the passenger waiting area and it was in danger of being lost.  The North Branch Land Trust has undertaken a massive restoration effort - rescuing the Noxen railroad depot from ruin to create a structure that is both useful and historic. Visit the web page for the Noxen Depot Project for more information.
