back on the scene
crispy and clean.

On a cloudy moonless
night sits the
Tobyhanna Train
Station. Situated on
Church Street or
Route 423 in Monroe
County, Pennsylvania.
Built in 1907, the Depot
served to transport ice
from Tobyhanna Lake via
railway. Currently a main
artery for natural
gas distribution within
the county. Part of The
National Railway Historical
Society . And a stop along
the seasonal locomotive
tours from Steamtown
Pennsylvania.

Coincidently the day after
the original post. I had the
opportunity to photograph
the train at the crossing.
Heating season. Stay warm.

Winter Wonder Land   1 comment

Here in the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania snow can become abundant. Due to its’ geographical location. Rather modest altitude of sixteen thousand feet. Lake effect from the Great Lakes, and its’ mountain region sitting on a plateau. You better get used to looking like you came from the Mountain as you go to town to shop.

The pictures rest from my town called Tobyhanna.”Tobyahanna” is derived from an American Indian word meaing “a stream whose banks are fringed with alder.” Known for the ice the lake supplied in the early nineteen hundreds. So needed was this ice in came a train station. But today more famously known for The Tobyhanna Army Depot. Tobyhanna Army Depot is the largest, full-service electronics maintenance facility in the Department of Defense. But in recent times many New Yorkers have found this area for vacation homes and permanent residency. Due to the proximity of The Big Apple.

Just a few photographs after a rather calm six to eight inches of snow. Temperature was listed at zero degrees on this day January 3, 2014.

As cold as it is, there is going to be pleasant scenery. So while the wind howls, and the trees sway, enjoy the winter months, for it will soon go away. Stay warm... "The house on the lake"
