We figured it out where it was on the NYC (only 17 miles from Horseshoe Curve), but where was it on the PRR?

I'm going to guess the summit between Lloydsville & Blandburg, on the former Bells Gap Railroad, altitude 2,240 feet. That seems to beat the PRR's other crossings of the Allegheny Front (Gallitzin, Tyrone & Clearfield through Emigh's Gap, Bellefonte & Snow-Shoe at Rhoads) and the summit on the Kinzua Ry. at Marshburg.

Trains Magazine states it was the end of the Llanfair Branch (Cambria County) at 2,457 feet. That would have been quite a push out of Sidman (Lovett).
