The ninth annual reunion of the
Gravity Employes' Association wns
held at Nay Aug Park Saturday. Sev
eral hundred former employes of the
old Delawnro it Hudson nnd Wash
ington Gravity Railways with their
wives and families spent tho day in
tho pnrk and renewed old friend
ships. The day was ideal and from
early morning until the shndes of
evening began to fall tho men who
ran over tho inclines before tho
days of steam swapped stories and
spun yarns about tho days when they'
were the real railroad men of this
end of the state.
The election of officers was hold in
tho afternoon and an interesting pa
per was read by iMIss Tlllle Turner,
whose parents for years resided at
tho head of No. 14 plane. Tho offi
cers chosen were as follows: A. C.
Snyder, of Dunuiore, president;
County Controller Charles P. Sav
age, secretary and treasurer; Chas.
O. Ellis, Carbondale, first vice-presi
dent, and Georgo Washington Bona
parte Allen, of Dunmore, second
Tho committee or arrangements
for the reunion were: S. A. Diltz, P.
J. Foster, E. A. Wonnacott, of Car
bondale; William D. BIgart and W.
C. Correll, of Dunmore, together
with A. C. Snyder and C. P. Savage,
respectively president and secretary
of the association.
Much has been printed about the
coal cars and passenger cars that
ran on tho gravity railroads, but
nothing has yet appeared regarding
what wore called "tho trucks,
which were low flat cars for carrying
logs. A. C. Snyder, president of the
Gravity Employes' Association, left
the lumber woods of New York state
In the early 60's. when ho was a kid,
and coming to Dunmore, our neigh
boring borough, obtained employ
ment with "Saxey" Secor. Mr. Se-
cor, who lives near the foot of No.
C, was tho contractor employed on
the Pennsylvania gravity, to load
logs upon "the trucks" and bring
them into this valley. Mr. Snyder,
describing his iirst day on the road,
as well as subsequent experiences as
a Gravity hand, has written tho fol
"We left the head of No. C piano
at u o clock in the morning and
went up the famous Mooslc moun
tains. When we arrived at the head
of No. 11, which was the last ascend
ing piano on the mountain, the old
man' (Mr. Secor), said, 'Now, my
boy, we have fourteen miles of a ride
without the aid of wire ropes and
steam engines.' Away wo went
around short curves, and the first
thing I knew we were in tho No. 11
"When we came out In the day
light again my hat settled down on
my head and I felt great relief.
That a train of cars could run
through a hole like that was a stun
ner to me. On we went, passing
scrub oaks, huckleberry bushes and
rattlesnake dens. In about an hour
and a half wo arrived at the foot of
No. 12 plane. There we found
about half a mile of coal cars ahead
of us. While lying there waiting for
the coal to be hoisted up the plane,
I said to the old man, "This is the
way to railroad, for there is no
stopping for wood and old ties along
the road.' He replied, 'you have not
seen It all yet.' I wanted to hook
on but the old man said, 'Boy, you
get out of the way or you will lose
your fingers, and then you won't be
good for anything.'
"I climbed up on the little cars.
One of the other boys hooked on and
away we went up the hill. On ar
riving at the top we took another
road, which was called the branch.
This line ran to the foot of No. 19
on the light track, now known as
Lako Ariel.
"When we were about half way
over tho branch the train stopped
along a big pllo of logs and props.
The old man picked up a canthook,
handed it to me and said, 'Now, boy,
we don t want any wood or old ties.
but we want those logs and props
rolled on those trucks In short order.'
I took tho canthook and looked at
it as if I had never seen one before.
but I had used one ever since I was
big enough. My father was a lum
berman and I was at homo with the
"When the trucks were loaded tho
chains were drawn over tho top, the
binders pulled down and fastened and
wo proceeded on our trip. On ar
riving at No. 19, wo stopped for din
ner in front of Potter's Hotel.
"After dinner wo started out for
homo. When we arrived at tho head
of 21, Mr. Secor said, 'Boy, you will
havo twelve miles to sit down; watch
mo run the trucks and learn all you
can about them.' When wo were
about five miles from tho head of 21
wo came out of tho woods at a little
town called Dunnlngs and I saw an
other railroad across tho creek.
There was a train with threo loco
motives standing at the station. One
of tho engines was at the wood pile
taking wood and the pllo appeared
big enough to save the men tho
trouble of tearing down fences or
picking up old ties. I asked Mr.
Wo unloaded tho props at tho mines
nnd returned.
"I worked on this train a yenr and
then went on a coal train between
Dunmore nnd Hawley with Edward
Secor, son of Allan Secor. 1 ran on
this train until tho fnll of 18GG.
when I was compelled to lcavo on ac
count of tho cars riding so hard.
Tho track was nearly all strap Iron,
spiked on sleepers. After it was
used n while It became rough and It
was impossible for me to stand the
jarring nuy longer."
