WNYP - locations for meeting trains?

Post by therock » Wed Aug 10, 2011 5:59 pm

On the WNYP (ex-Meadville Line), are there siding locations that used to meet the coal trains regularly (other than at the yards - Meadville, Olean, etc.) I'm thinking of the overhead NS coal trains which run, and am wondering where they would meet if there were opposing trains on the route.

I think there was a set of radio-controlled switches at Columbus, PA - not sure of its length; I assume that's one location. Are the sidings at Cuba, Hinsdale, Salamanca ever used for meets?
