Buildings Railroad Photos Plans & Maps Books & Links

Mauch Chunk (pronounced Mauk Chunk) in Pennsylvania is now known as Jim Thorpe.  Jim Thorpe is a stunning historical town deep in the valley of the Lehigh River and still retains many of its historical buildings.  In the 1900s it was the second favourite tourist centre in the USA after Niagara Falls and was known as the Switzerland of America - it is still well worth a visit - see the tourist links in Books & Links.

The pages here contain building drawings and photos, plans and information about the the Lehigh waterfront area of old Mauch Chunk, PA, - adjacent to the CNJ railroad station.  There are details of books and local Jim Thorpe organisations (in Books & Links).  Go to the Photos page (above) for archive and recent photos of the old Mauch Chunk riverside.

The pages under the Railroad  (above) contain information about the CNJ operations in Mauch Chunk in the 1940s and early 1950s - operations, signalling, what locomotives were seen there and other miscellaneous details. These pages are still in a fairly early stage of development. For other information about the locomotives that the CNJ ran, go to the CNJ pages.
