A newspaper called the River Reporter, based in a place called Narrowsburg, New York (across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania) has a new article on the proposed rail line between the Poconos in Pennsylvania and Hoboken.
They write: "Somewhere down the track, restored passenger trains might bring tourists from outlying metropolitan areas to Wayne County towns like Hawley and Honesdale for weekend adventures in the country.
"Operators of the Stourbridge Railway have begun to explore the possibility of running a weekend train from Hoboken, NJ to Honesdale. While there are still miles to go in the planning process, including discussions with other railroad lines and regional officials, as well as mounting hurdles like skyrocketing insurance costs and upgrading track, there is a good possibility that weekend excursions to the Upper Delaware [River] region will be sold as packages featuring stays at area resorts."
