RR Xing

The TCIR is a branchline of the PRR. It was started by George Westinghouse to move supplies to his gas fields. It is around 12 miles in length stretching from Export to the PRR (now NS ) interchange at Trafford.  It was taken over by Penn Central and then Conrail.  Around 1980 it was to be abandoned by Conrail so the family that owns Dura-Bond Steel fabricators bought the line to serve its plants and a few other trackside industries.  Recently (2010) the line had a major problem with a washout along Turtle Creek that took out some track.

My layout is part prototype and part freelance.
