BURGETTSTOWN, PA STATIONS

Post by shlustig » Wed Nov 09, 2016 8:12 am

In the 1950's, PRR operated commuter service Pittsburgh / Burgettstown - Center St. on the Panhandle towards Steubenville, Ohio.

Center St. does not have a mileage indicator on the timetables in the Official Guides, but the station index shows 2 stations in Burgettstown.

? is why there were 2 stations there?

The commuter trains went to Center Avenue station, down a branch, while the main line station, according to an Official Guide, was 700 feet away.
Below is a scan from the PRR CT-1000 of 1945.
Here's a link to a track chart of the Burgetts Branch.
And another link with location coordinates and a modern day picture.
The main line appears to be a newer alignment; further research necessary.
