100 Miles From Pittsburgh

An eastbound Conrail train passes milepost 100 on the Fort Wayne Line near Canton on March 9, 1985.

On the point is SD40 No. 6305 and a sister unit hauling another load of freight.

Mileposts on the Fort Wayne Line are numbered from downtown Pittsburgh, specially, West Penn, which is 0.2 miles west of the former Pennsylvania Railroad passenger station.
