Even though these photos were taken two years ago during a trip to Eckley Miners Village, near Hazelton, PA, I felt it was a relevant time to post them. Next weekend, June 23-24 is the annual Patch Town Days at Eckley. This year marks the 50 anniversary of the filming of the Molly Maguire’s movie. Hard to believe the movie was filmed in the spring and summer of 1968 in our local 50 years ago. Other local locations included Jim Thorpe and Bloomsburg. Of particular interest to me was the filming done at Bloomsburg. The Carroll Park and Western Railroad was used I filming the important scene of bring the coal to market and the sabotage of the train. The coal jimmys seen in these pictures were transported from Eckley, where they were built, to Bloomsburg to be used on the tracks of the CP&W for filming. I’ll cover the roll of the CP&W in the movie more in the book I am working on about the Carroll Park and Western Railroad. But for now, I wanted to share some of my original photos from our family outing to Eckley. If anyone is interested in getting prints of any of the photos, please email me at berwickrailfan@Hotmail.com for more information.
