Now I've dug out a PRR System Map on Form 1 and it would appear the (historical roads) routing for the noted traffic would be D&H-Bingo-ERIE-Elmira-PRR-Wms'pt/Enola/H'town-N&W. All those roads noted are now NS.
PRR below Elmira has been gone for 40+ years. It didn't even go into Conrail, or if it did it was abandoned very early. Probably some more up to date maps are in order.
NS owns the entire southern half of the D&H, comprised of the former D&H to Binghamton, the 1976 acquired former PRR Sunbury line from Wilkes-Barre, and the 1982-acquired former DL&W main from Binghamton to Scranton, plus some related connecting lines. The DL&W line replaced D&H's own original line to Scranton.
From Wilkes-Barre there are two ways they can go; via former CP/D&H to Sunbury and then Enola or via Dupont, connection to the Lehigh Line, then Allentown and to the former Reading and south. A portion of this route is owned by the Reading & Northern but both CP had and NS has rights on it. I'm sure being low margin the trash goes whatever way has the least expense.
