Awesome job hitting these Steve! Iíve heard rumors that these are to become part of a rail trail and have been formally abandoned by NS.

Line is just mothballed by NS, they still own it.

This was Big Four/P&E, then Penn Central, then Conrail.

Last train ran sometime in 1999 before the CR split between NS and CSX.
