#121 of 128 in Nature in Pennsylvania
Pocono Mountain is a proposed New Jersey Transit Rail Operations (NJT) station located in Coolbaugh Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania and is part of a site that was formerly utilized as a summer camp. The proposed station site, which will include a 1,000-space surface parking lot, is located northwest of a multi-phased planned development for this area. Access will be from PA Route 611 via Pocono Municipal Road/Mount Pocono Road and a local access road. The station is not dependent on any future development within the area. Rail service from this station to New Jersey and New York City would be provided by NJ Transit if Lackawanna Cut-Off Restoration Project is completed.BackgroundThe main line of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad (DL&W) Lackawanna Cut-Off passed through the southern end of the borough of Mount Pocono with service to Hoboken Terminal. A passenger station was originally built at the crossing of what is now Pennsylvania Route 611 in 1886. Most of the station was demolished in 1937 when the highway was widened. Regular passenger service to the borough ended in 1965. The DL&W tracks now carry freight trains and an occasional excursion train from Steamtown National Historic Site.
