Does anyone have any information on this line and when trains run on it?

This line was formerly the PRR's Chartier's Branch:

The Pittsburgh and Ohio Central Railroad operates it now:

There is a Wikipedia article on the branch, but it states that Conrail stopped service west of Tylerdale in 1976 and I know for a fact that is incorrect, as I saw trains service Judson & Wiley (in Washington) into the early 1980's.
