The C&H is (was) a Pittsburgh area road. It is a short line that connected a power plant (Duquesne Light) near Cheswick with the Bessemer & Lake Erie at Harmerville. I don't know if it still exists, but its purpose was to haul coal between those two points. When I lived in Pittsburgh,I recall the road was called the Harmerville & Cheswick. I never saw any cars lettered for the road, but, apparently, they did roster some at one time. These would have been interchanged with the B&LE as there were no mines located on the line. Or, possibly, they were limited to some kind of in-plant service.
I haven't been up that way in years, so I don't know what is left.

The C&H car does not carry full dimensional data, or does it have enough to meet some minimum standard for interchange in the 1936 time frame? Despite having incomplete information, it is marked with two "return to" interchange points. Strange.
