List,

Let me revise a typo for West "Nanticoke".

Also IIRC the Hunlock Creek station still exists between West Nanticoke and
Shickshinny.

Here are some more recent views of the Bloom. Kingston Roundhouse, Old Forge
station, West Nanticoke looking west, and Susquehanna River bridge at West
Pittston on the Bloom.

Joshua,

There are few other locations on the northern end of the Bloom that still
have significant DL&W structure still standing:

Taylor, station serves as yard office for CP.

Old Forge, Station and trestle over the Lackawanna River.

West Pittston, Trestle over Susquehanna River nice vantage point from
Susquehanna St, Hitchner Bisket, Connecting track to abandoned interchange
with the West Pittston & Exeter.

Kingston, as you mentioned the 10 stall roundhouse, the intact rail ends
just railroad east of the roundhouse, walk railroad west and there are
trestles for the main of the Bloom as well as the trestles that once went to
the Woodward Colliery.

West Nanticoke, DL&W station, PRR trestle over the Susquehanna River.

Hope this helps.

Brian
