E&P Branch summary and traffic counts

The Erie & Pittsburgh Branch (former PRR) ran from New Castle, PA to Girard Junction, PA, where the PRR then had trackage rights for 12 miles over the New York Central's main line to Erie. The line had a substantial customer base at its east (geographic south) end, but the west end of the line was rural with few customers, and Penn Central was considering abandoning the route west of Jamestown.

Below are two documents about the E&P Branch. The first is a summary document that lists the block stations and remote interlockings on the line, followed by a listing of towns and customers on the line, including car counts, for the years 1968 and 1969. The second document shows the same information (except the block stations and remote interlockings) for the years 1967 and 1968, plus car counts for 1971 and the first quarter of 1972 for customers between Sharpsville and Girard Junction.
