Pa. Short Line Takes Over NS Track

Pennsylvania short line North Shore Railroad will take over Norfolk Southern operations in Snyder County, Pennsylvania.

It ran its first train to Kreamer on May 4. North Shore operates for the Susquehanna Economic Development Association Council of Government Joint Rail Authority.

SEDA-COG purchased the rail line serving Kreamer, plus those serving Selinsgrove and Shamokin Dam, from NS last month.

NS had been operating the lines since 1999, when it took over service from Conrail. The lines now make up North Shore Railroad’s Selinsgrove Branch, extending its original operation that runs from Northumberland through Danville, Bloomsburg, and Berwick to Beach Haven.
