Remarks & Notes 
A truly unique chapter in the railroading history of Pennsylvania is the Stourbridge Line. Originally part of the D&H Canal, this is the home of "the first commercial locomotive on rails in the western hemisphere" (Wayne County Chamber of Commerce) that took place on August 8, 1829. A replica of that locomotive, Stourbridge Lion, is on permanent display in Honesdale. After a rather intricate, storied time hauling coal and assorted revenue, thru a series of different operators, the rails have been almost exclusively seasonal passenger service since 1989. Closer to Scranton than you'd think, but far away enough to remain a hidden jewel in railroading.
