LE 78.9

The best location for photography in the area is the green through-truss bridge that allows access to the Easton Canal Park from Main Street, passing over the Lehigh Line at signal 78. Views can be had here of eastbound and westbound trains along the canal.

1) NS 214 rolls through the 78 automatic signals at Glendon.
2) NS 20G is seen from the north side of the Lehigh Canal.
3) NS 19G rolls west towards the 78 automatic signals, about to pass under the overpass.

Main Street continues west along the railroad. Follow it past both park access roads and take a right onto Island Park Road to follow the railroad west towards Bethlehem. Island Park Road allows some photographic views of the mainline; however, the road is narrow and care must be exercised with parking and photography. After 1 - 1.25 miles on Island Park Road, you will come upon the location of the former Lehigh Valley Richards Yard, long since removed. The area is currently a holding spot for a paving contractor. Just to the west is Richards interlocking at MP LE 81.1, inaccessible via public property.
