Can anyone give me info on the yard that used to be in Catasaqua, PA along the LVRR mainline. It's where the LV, LNE, Ironton, and RDG interchanged. I'd like to know when/why it was abandoned and what it was used for. From Mike Bednar's book it seemed to be pretty substantial in size. I'd also like to know where I can get good pics of the yard in the later years. There is nothing there now but weeks and ghost signals. My buddy told me that CR was still using it in the 1970s but I doubt it.

You try the Pennsylvania Railfan forum? Maybe someone there might know better.
