Remarks & Notes 
America's industrial past, in a scene scanned from a slide from the collection of the late George "Whitey" Nagle. The photo shows a hopper train on what is today's NS Harrisburg Line, passing one of the many then-active industrial sidings in Lebanon. The building in the right-background is Buell Engineering's Union Boiler Works office and fab shop. One of Buell's oil refinery cyclones is shown being loaded into a Reading gondola by a mobile crane. (Cyclones are used to recover the catalyst which is used in the process of converting crude oil to gasoline and other products.) Today at this location, all side tracks have been removed. The best guess for a photo date would be the early 1960s, as the Buell engineering office (built 1962) is not visible across the tracks.
