Videographer Steve Neff set out to capture what is perhaps the most photogenic Rairoad in Pennsylvania. His beautiful composition and attention to details make this video an outstanding reference to one of the nations most modern Railroads.
The Monongahela (pronounced "Monon-GA-Hela") is a major coal hauling Railroad running through Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Unit trains from Detroit Edison, Somerset Railway, Wisconsin Electric, and others are shown in this video.
Motive power from the Pittsburg and Lake Erie, Chicago & Northwestern, CSX, Detroit Edison and Conrail as well as the Monongahela's own handsome Super 7's are shown. You will see four and six axle EMD and GE powered trains (including the wide cab 4000 hp Conrail units.)
The Monongahela is organized into two operating divisions. The Eastern portion of the line is not too scenic, and is not covered in this video in deference to the beautiful scenery available to set off the trains on the western division. With action galore, this railroad becomes the seventh largest coal hauling Railroad in the United States. In 1989 it moved over 17 Million Tons of coal!
Action is shown on all of the western division branches including the West Brownsville branch , the Ten Mile branch, the Manor branch (including action at Bailey Mine.) The Waynesburg branch, and the Miracle Run branch.
