Hi friends,

I just won an auction on eBay of 6 photos of the narrow gauge around Lansford #6. I will post them in a bit

Researching the locations reopened a question. What was the difference between the Lehigh Coal & Navigation name and the Lehigh Navigation Coal name? They seem to have been used simultaneously and rail equipment was lettered both ways. In "Death of a Great Company" LNC seems to be the preferred abbreviation.

Figures it must have been something like that, like the Central Railroad of NJ operating as the Central Railroad of PA west of the Delaware River.
