George,  my sister just graduated from Clarion Univ. last summer so I
visited Clarion quite recently.

Yes, the entire line, Summerville to Clarion has been removed.  I believe
there last year of operation was 1993 or so.

On occassion I see a former piece of LEF&C rolling stock running around. 
Last summer I saw an ex-LEF hoppers on UP in Columbus, NE of all places. 
About two months ago I saw a former LEF&C box car on CSX here in the
Detroit area.  There is an LEF&C wood caboose just south of Clarion being
used as a chamber of commerce type office, next to the Holiday Inn.

During our Dec. visit found that the Clarion Model RR Club is building an
HO scale layout depicting the LEF&C line.
