It is rare to see an old rail line abandoned for so many years be reconstructed. These pictures show the early stage of reconstruction. The apparent plan for this line is to service the Keystone Quarry and Landfill. (part of the Keystone industrial track) This was serviced by the Erie's Wyoming Division (Last known as the "Dunmore running track") but severe damage to the line in 1985 by hurricane Gloria makes reconstruction of this line impractical. Although the rails are still in place in most locations, the damage is severe. The rebuilding of part of the old Winton Branch will be approximately 1.75 miles and will connect to the former Jessup Branch just before the Drinker Street crossing.

This map shows the line after Marshwood road. The Erie's Jessup Branch is also shown.
Just before the Olyphant exit the railbeds are erased.
This image is near the Jessup exit of Route 6. I traced out how the railbeds ran into Jessup.
This map was a
great help in figuring out how these lines ran. This part shows "Rock
Junction" (Erie) and how the Winton branch came off the mainline.
This shows where the Underwood Colliery site was in relation to the rail lines.
This map shows how the lines went into the Jessup Railyard
With the project of replacing I-380/84 bridges. The old pump house is in poor condition and as seen, the roof has collapsed. The growth around it has been cleared and its a good guess the remains will be torn down. A few drone pictures of it as of May 2020
Drone video which is also posted on "Old 611 / Drinker Turnpike" This shows the Winton Branch since it runs close to the old Drinker Turnpike. It has been eight years since work was done on the Winton Branch and the plans to re-activate it scrapped.
