Never did get clear as to what was a "rairoad ghost town". If you are talking Sayre, PA and Binghamton, NY, then Susquehanna and Carbondale, PA have to be there, too. But in all four cases the towns around them still exist plus all four have quite a bit of railroad activities, Susquehanna having no yard or industry and only one round trip or less daily and Carbondale which is handled by a short line up from Scranton; but they all lack the large or multi railroad facilities of the mid 20th Century.. Or if you want to talk about a town like Ronovo, PA which in itself is so contracted since the PRR shops were closed that you could almost call it a ghost town; similar to Susquehanna, but much smaller. Or a real ghost town like Laquin, PA for one example, where the once thriving logging industry supported the Susquehanna and NY Railroad and today the cinder path is all that remains of that era. I bet there are thousands of stories similar to all the above. Just need a definition to decide what the initial post was seeking.
