Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley RHS




The Laurel Line, Our Namesake Line

"Laurel Lines" is the official newsletter of the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Rail Historical Society. The newsletter is named after the Laurel Line, an electric interurban line that promised "Fast, frequent service between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton". The Laurel Line also hauled freight throughout the region.

We remember the Laurel Line, the Chapter's namesake through its logo, the three rails surrounded by the Laurel leaves and its colors. Recall that two rails were for the locomotives and rolling stock to ride on and the third rail supplied the power. Some areas used overhead wires instead of the third rail.
