Wood Burning Engine

This photo of a wood-burning engine was taken around 1859 when coal was being mined near Catawissa on McAuley Mountain. The mining didn’t pan out, so it was given up. There was a train station in the area where the photo was taken. McAuley Mountain is the next ridge after going over River Hill, from Bloomsburg.
