Notes About Existing Stations...

Brownsville (Union) - This is a large office building on the main street through Brownsville that houses a multitude of businesses. Until the takeover of the Monongahela Railway by Conrail in 1993, I believe it also served as the operational headquarters of the Mon Rwy. I know that the station saw passenger service from both the PRR and Mon Railways as I have seen it listed on timetables from both railroads. I am unsure about the status of P&LE service to this station. --Doug Swesty

Connellsville (P&LE) - This is the "old" pre-1911 P&LE station. It was built in 1907. A board was found inside a wall that a worker had put in while building it. It was dated July 30, 1907. Station was shared with the Western Maryland. Originally used for passenger and freight. When the elevated platform station was built down the street, passenger operations moved there. Because it was originally built for passengers, the front half interior is all wood. The walls and ceiling are tongue and groove boards with a bead. The floor is 1" thick tongue and groove boards. There is a basement under the front half. Originally a loading dock came out under the rear door from the baggage/freight section to where the tracks came up to the back of the building. There is a built in desk and a ticket window inside. --Mark Rowan

Ohiopyle (WM) - Building used as a state park info center. ROW owned by a rails-to-trails group.
