Album Info:Following the ex-B&O main up from Cumberland and over Sand Patch, CSX uses the former P&LE line to bypass downtown Pittsbrugh. The line alternates between single and double track until it clears the city to the west at McKee's Rocks, PA. More to come as a scan in slides

Autorack switching onto the PL&E
Title:  Autorack switching onto the PL&E
Description:  A lot going on here. The train is leaving the old B&O, which contiunes to the left, and is entering the old P&LE. CSX sold the old B&O throught Pittsburgh to the AVR. What a loss because that segment of line has an old B&O tower (JW at Glennwood) and several working B&O CPLs. Above the first autorack the Kennywood Rollercoasters can be seen.
