Pa. Short-Line RR Reopens After Being Flooded

The Nittany & Bald Eagle short-line railroad in central Pennsylvania is back in operation after being knocked out of service last week due to flooding.

PennsylvaniaSome sections of track were washed out, but have since been repaired by railroad crews.

The storm flooded sections of Bellefonte, Milesburg and Howard after more than seven inches of rain fell in three hours.

Less than 3,000 feet of track was damaged by the flooding, which occurred at low points, near culverts and in Bellefonte Yard.

Crews were working on Monday to repair track so that slow orders could be removed.

No railroad rolling stock or equipment was damaged in the flooding.

The N&BE operates between Tyrone and Lock Haven and has a branch to Bellefonte, Pleasant Gap and Lemont. It has 87.3 miles of track.
