About: Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour (22JUL2015)

I didn’t go on there because I was scared
I went to the same mine prob 5 years ago. Loved it looks the same had a blast lol
This is where I went on a field trip
Things have changed. I went on the tour about 8 or 9 years ago and hard hats and hair nets weren't required. My grandfather was a Pittston coal miner.
It looks exactly the same as I remember it in 1990
Very well done tour of the Lackawanna Mines. Looks like fun, what city are you near?
