Hearing my friend Ryan’s tales of Northeastern PA enticed us to go spend a weekend up that way seeing what there was to see. Turns out, the answer was a bunch of great stuff.
I often joke that I am the way I am because I grew up up the street from a Chemical plant. I’m not making it up though. Allied Chemical had a plant at the end of my street. Conrail served this plant via a spur with lots of character, and I’ve long wanted to catch a train there again.
