Anyone know more about the DL&W Iron Company cited in the third full
paragraph of the attached 1880 History of Luzerne, Lackawanna, and
Wyoming counties? From what I can see it's not mentioned in Taber.

This is the information available on-line

The Crooked Lake Review April 2008
The Day They Changed the Gauge on the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
By Richard Palmer

"In anticipation that considerable new rail would have to be laid, the
D.L.& W. erected a steel mill of its own in Scranton at a cost of $1.2
million. The first 200 tons of rail produced were laid on the Oswego &
Syracuse line from Stiles, just north of Syracuse, to Oswego. This
replaced worn-out iron rail that had been in place for years."

Finally if anyone is in need of a post Christmas present, the 1880
history document can be downloaded at
