Thanks for the links. I always wanted to see a train on the connector between the GTW and C&O lines. It came off the GTW near Potter Park, crossed Pennsylvania and went north along Hosmer St. and eventually connected with the C&O at Kalamazoo St. Does anyone know what they ever used that for? I realize there is a business on the west side of Pennsylvania that used to get serviced, but was that connector ever actually used for trains to go from the GTW to the C&O?Michael wrote:The USGS Topograpic maps of that area also have an incredible amount of detail of all the rail lines and road names and can be downloaded:

I remember seeing the tracks in the 70s, but they always looked overgrown to me, so I doubt they ever got used much at all in my lifetime (born in '67).
