In the hay-days of the old PRR, they had two main lines between Columbus and New Paris, OH. One line went Columbus-Xenia-Dayton-New Paris while the other went Columbus-Bradford-Greenville-New Paris. Which line had more freight traffic on it, both through freight and local and were both lines double track and signaled? Were either line subjected to any grades significant curves? The line through Bradford was part of the old Panhandle mainline from Columbus to Chicago via Logansport, IN; did this line have a significant amount of through freight traffic also? Did the PRR route Pittsburgh and Columbus traffic to Indianapolis and St. Louis traffic primarily via Dayton or was it sent via Bradford?
