By the 1970ミs, the once thriving Anthracite roads were struggling to survive. The long decreasing demand for coal, along with a series of other contributing factors, left these roads in spiraling financial decline. These railroads managed to keep the freight rolling into the mid 70ミs with little resources available, but the die was cast and all the Anthracite roads would eventually be swept into Conrail in 1976. In Volume 2 of the Anthracite Railroads in the 70ミs series, weミll look at the ailing operations of the Lehigh Valley Railroad from Bound Brook, New Jersey to Treichlers, Pennsylvania in the final years leading up to Conrail, including the joint Penn Central ore trains and D&H run through trains.
