A recommendation that the Lehigh Valley Railroad be allowed to drop passenger service on its 27 mile Lehighton to Hazleton branch was made by an Interstate Commerce Commission examiner. The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has denied the railroad's request to discontinue the service but the company asked the ICC to overrule the PUC. Examiner Lester R. Conley, in making his recommendation, said the LVRR is sustaining annual loses of more than $60,000 on the operation of four single-car trains on the run.
