Historical Context

The Erie & Wyoming Valley Rail Road was a coal gathering line that was originally controlled by the Pennsylvania Coal Company (51%) and the Erie Railroad (49%).

 

The line was designed to replance the PCC's gravity railroad between Dunmore and Hawley, with a steam line, which would bring coal straight from the mines without unloading at Hawley.

 

In 1901, the Erie took complete control of both companies, with the rail line operating as Erie's Wyoming Division.
