Members of the Luzerne County Historical Society’s board toured Wilkes-Barre’s former New Jersey Central train station Tuesday as part of board member and hotelier Gus Genetti’s push to save the deteriorating structure. The county Redevelopment Authority owns the property at the corner of Market Street and Wilkes-Barre Boulevard but has no funding to renovate the structure. Genetti wants the historical society to accept ownership of the property and raise money for its restoration and preservation.

Gus Genetti, at right, discusses the condition of the train station with Andrew Reilly, acting director of the county Redevelopment Authority.
