Not sure of the information on the railroad, although indications are it used to exist.
As of about 10 years ago, the Parker Pony Truss bridge used to connect Route 11 Plymouth to the old Carey Avenue truss bridge which spanned across the Susquehanna River. When complete this connected Plymouth to the west with Hanover Township to the east. The old Carey Avenue bridge was removed and a new one was built upstream. The Parker Pony Truss is still used, mostly for local and business traffic. Interesting setup before the old bridge was torn down.
Work will be commencing literally within days on replacement of the bridge deck for rehabilitation and so it will be closed for at least 5 months according to the signs posted.
More information if I get it.
Does anyone know when this railroad was abandoned and the tracks pulled up? Old Carey Avenue Bridge, Plymouth Boro, Luzerne County, PA.
