A watchman, Ernest Smith, at the Central Avenue railroad crossing in Canonsburg, PA, reported that 115 trains (passenger, coal, and general-freight), had crossed on a Thursday in April, 1902 on the Chartiers branch. That is a lot of traffic for a "simple" branch line!

The pages linked to below provide all the prototype information about the equipment I have documented so far. Since I model 1924, only equipment reportedly, or likely to have been, seen on the Chartiers branch in that year.
