SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania newspaper just received a calendar for the new year, which would be fine except the year is 1950.
Scranton's The Times-Tribune reported that a mail carrier delivered the calendar 63 years late without explanation on Friday.
The large tube contained a 1950 Pennsylvania Railroad calendar addressed to James Flanagan, former general manager of The Scranton Times.
The calendar includes a holiday greeting from a railroad executive dated December 1949, the same month Flanagan died.
A U.S. Postal Service spokesman says lost mail is sometimes found when a machine is dismantled or office space is renovated.
Times-Tribune publisher Bobby Lynett says he'll see if the Steamtown National Historic Site railroad museum is interested in the calendar and if not, he'll display it in the newspaper's offices.
