Delaware Water Gap Station Description and Details:
History: The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railway (DL&W) first arrived at the Delaware River in 1856 with a train to New York City. The terrain from Scranton had been mountainous and isolated; the route traced the course of major streams, crossed the Lehigh's headwater at Gouldsboro, and bisected Pocono Summit Lake on DL&W's land bridge.
Amenities: There are limited amenities at the station itself; grilled food and cold beverages will be available for purchase. There will also be bus transportation into town where visitors can enjoy local vendors and restaurants.
