Charlie Runs Through West Hazleton

Hazle Park
West Hazleton (1919)
This is a train that ran at a children's amusement park, and the photo is from 1919.  If you're a fan of The Dark Tower, you are very likely already singing "Don't ask me silly questions, I won't play silly games" in your head and thinking up riddles.  If you're not a fan of The Dark Tower, you have no idea what I'm talking about, and you should stop here, go find a copy of The Gunslinger and begin your literary adventure.  When you get to Charlie The Choo Choo, you'll understand.

Hazle Park in West Hazleton, PA was in operation from 1892 to 1956.  This ad is from June, 1950.
