From Bob Ciminel's web site:
"The crossing at Campbells Run Road was a busy place as trains went by on the Panhandle main and onto and off of the Chartiers Branch. I remember the abandonment of the Chartiers Branch connecting track at the Carnegie passenger station happening in the early 1950s. The 1955 Panhandle Division Employee Timetable shows the trainphone was in service on the Chartiers Branch between Wagner Interlocking (Carnegie) and MO Manual Block Station (west of Hills at Milepost 9.6). That would indicate that trainphone-equipped cabin cars could and would operate on the Chartiers Branch."
