Found this book about the life of a Pennsy engineer that lived in Ralston and worked 45 years between Williamsport and Snedeckerville.
Whats left of this branch today?

truman-Is the title of this book "Set Up Running" by John W. Orr? If so, you're referring to the PRR's Elmira Branch which was heavily damaged (leading to abandonment) by Hurricane Agnes in June 1972.

A good reference (if you can find it) is the "Pennsylvania Railroad's Elmira Branch" by Bill Caloroso.
