Chasing Norfolk Southern Train 36T From Pittston To Lehighton, Pa.

Maybe it was the three ex-Cons trailing the lead Dash-9 but for some reason this train brought out a lot of railfans on its way down to Allentown, Pa.. We followed it from Oak Street in Pittston to Packerton Jct. in Lehighton (over the Reading & Northern nee Lehigh Valley) where it crosses over the Lehigh River and onto its own tracks for the rest of its journey into Allentwon Yard.
