unfortunately the scrapers got to the coke ovens. I was there in October 2015. Most of the steel work from the coke ovens are gone. The concrete towers are still there and the refractory core of the coke ovens and a smoke stack. The "coal tipple" is still there and being used, the lights were still on and a couple vehicles were parked there. I stayed away from that area. I think they closed the coke operation in like the year 2000.

My Dad worked there in the early 70's for a brief time. He also worked at Donner Hanna Coke. I think i might ask him to tell me stories about it. Love the contrast of height and depth in the pic. Btw, first time commenter here. Thanks for visiting the old Lackawanna Plant.
