The ill-fated Pittsburg, Binghamton & Eastern; the Williamsport & North Branch; the Susquehanna & New York; the Eagles Mere; the Susquehanna & Eagles Mere; the Bloomsburg & Sullivan; and the Susquehanna, Bloomsburg & Berwick lines are also covered in this informative tour of railroading in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania."
