PC: Re: Re: Lebanon Branch

Hello Seth,

You are correct about the line I was referring to.  I thought after the 1972
Flood was when the line ceased to operate, but I wasn't sure.  Hurricane
Agnes did a lot of damage here in the State of PA.  I also appreciate the
reference to where you found the information.  I am working on a railroad
book with a local historical society and the information you sent will help

Thanks for your reply,
Don Rhoads
Lebanon, PA.
