Yes, Schuyler, there are cows in Penna. but not many in that neighborhood.

There may have been shipping sources further west and north in McKean and Potter Counties but I have never heard of it producing large bulk shipments.  Port Allegany and Eldred on the Buffalo Line are possibilities but any traffic coming to Renovo via the old P&E from Erie seems very unlikely although there were milk stations over there closer to that town.  Did any ship that far away to the east???  Good question to pursue if interested.

Mike Schleigh in Grove City also found in Penna.

I live not far from Renovo and I'm having trouble understanding what a milk tank car would be doing there. Perhaps it was merely passing through on its way to some place where there were cows?

Now that's *rich* Pennsy railroading! Which H-subclass on the point, -8?
