Rick,

When we visited the Underwood colliery site we walked in on what I believe
was the original colliery access road. The road had been substantially
widened to support coal stripping and the use of large Euclid dump trucks.
It was a bit difficult to locate the top of the "Rock Slope" portal due to
complete forest growth on the site. Once there several foundations from the
Underwood Colliery were found adjacent to the slope, I will venture a guess
that the large foundation was the wash shanty and the smaller foundation a
lamp house. While we there the skies opened up and we retreated back to the
cars.

Prior to visiting the Underwood site. We visited the "Eddy Tunnel" that was
built to supply anthracite to the Underwood from a remote location. I've
attached two photos.

You are so correct that Scranton is loosing it's industrial past to wrecking
ball.

Brian

Thanks very much for that photo. Yes as you were told a year ago, the site
is being developed for housing. With housing coming in from one side and the
Rte. 6 Freeway in existence just above, it's only a matter of time.

That was very real to me when we were at those locations over the July 4
Weekend. The sad part is that a piece of Scranton's history (like a lot of
other pieces) are going away and no one seems to care.

Can you tell us what else you saw there a year ago?

Rick
