Our first stop was Easton and the remains of the former Lehigh Valley passenger station. It is a chilly morning as we explore what used to be the top level of the station where the passengers would wait for the trains.

The public parking lot next to the now closed Bethlehem Steel Mill makes a good spot to take pictures of the blast furnaces. These are pictures of the 3 pass stoves that pre heated the air (blast).
