|Through trains can bypass
Greenville using the KO line.
Most trains bypassing Greenville pause on a siding either north or
south of Greenville. The crew ties the cars down, hooks up air from a
stationary supply and take the locomotives light to Greenville. Later
another crew picks up the cars and continues the journey. This
train was picked up north of Greenville at "KO" and then headed south
Pittsburgh over the KO line. The grade on the KO line is moderate (part
of the reason
bypassing Greenville) but still the locomotives were roaring,
the heavy ore train.
We're at Osgood. The track in the foreground is the NS Meadville Line,
and the B&LE old line crosses under the road just behind it. June
