Modeling the 1950's Nickel Plate Road down on the Wheeling in and around Adena, Ohio
Hello Sir,I been working on a research project for a friend, And I been researching out the Adena Branch /Valley Sub. One of my questions, was there ever a wye located at Pittsburgh Junction? Thank you, Len.
Thanks for visiting Len! As far as I know Pittsburg junction has always been just a spur from the W&LE mainline to the P&WV mainline, there has never been a wye at that junction to my knowledge. The geography of the area would've made a wye difficult with a very sharp inside curve. A long time ago here was a small three track yard on west side of Pittsburg Junction.The interchange track between the W&LE and P&WV at Mingo Junction on the Ohio River probably made it unnecessary for a wye at Pittsburg Junction to handle traffic headed back east to the river on the Wheeling.
