The attached map is from 1939, the DL&W Winton Branch is listed as
abandoned, however, it appears that the Erie serviced the Underwood breaker
complex in Throop.

Subject: DL & W winton branch
as with most railfans,my early interests have branched out.I live in
Scranton PA,and recently discovered a bunch of guys with an intertest in
the anthracite coal mines of the area.(although a little dangerous,we
behave safely) but anyway,I was wondering if anyone has any pics(for my
private viewing) of the Underwood colliery,located in Throop PA(few
miles southeast of Scranton) I believe it was served by the winton
branch,and the colliery closed in 1954(deep mining) but a strip mine was
later located there,and served by the EL.Any help would be greatly
appreciated-Tony Wilson PS I will enclose a link to there website The
Underground Miners Website
