Mike,i have a question concerning the coke works.Are they easy to find and does any rail exist that runs to the coke works?I'm asking because at one time there were alot of coke works located in Pa and they should be explored because of the history associated with them.
Thanks Don and Mike for the information and pictures.Great to know at least something remains from the coke works.

Apparently all that remains of the coke industry in this area is the old brick lined ovens out among the trees.
See this page:
Don,are the Fort Hill Coke Works still in operation?
Thank you Don. This one had me busy.
Mentioned on this page (scroll way down to find the pic & comment.):
"This span was built by the B&O to cross the river to serve the Fort Hill Coke Works on the other side. It was constructed in 1880."
