Looking for some information on the Racket Brook Breaker that was near Rt6 above Carbondale PA. Would anyone know when it ceased operations?

Mine records show Racket Brook Breaker having output in 1957. The 1958 report shows the coal from the Racket Brook "strippins being run at the Bolands Breaker. With that said, it looks like 1957 was the last year of operation of the Racket Brook Breaker. The last coal taken off the Racket Brook strippins was recorder as 365 tons in 1959. Hope this is of some help.

Thanks very much that is helpful. Originally that Breaker had railroad access (D&H) , but I would assume with the low output in the 50's that the RR was probably abandoned to the breaker.
