The ELHS meeting brought me to an unexplored geographical area. Inspired by
conversation with Schuyler and by the photo in Paul Tup's SusieQ book which
I purchased at the meeting, my wife and I went out in search of the fabled
coaling tower. It was wonderful to see this structure still standing -- its
Erie logo still sharply defined and proudly defiant of the elements -- as a
sentinel over a rail line whose status was impossible to deduce from looking
at the track. On the one hand there was jointed rail in less than optimal
condition; yet a half mile away there was laser-straight welded rail on a
recently groomed roadbed that looked like a BNSF main. A very strange
contrast, indeed! But tied with a visit to the Starrucca Viaduct,
railfanning could not get more profound in its mood.
