Pennsylvania Agency to Buy Key Rail Line

The Pennsylvania Northeast Regional Railroad Authority will purchase 10.6 miles of mainline railroad track owned by Norfolk Southern between East Stroudsburg and Slateford Junction through the Delaware Water Gap, the Pocono Record reports. The agency currently leases the line, originally a component of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western mainline, which is used in freight service and occasional excursions from Steamtown. It is slated to eventually be used by the planned passenger service linking Scranton and the Pocono Mountains to New York City.
