Elden:Erie serviced the mill in Lackawanna, NY - I believe that's where allthose Greenville gons were used. Youngstown Sheet and Tube too.
I will try to find out about YS&T, but I don't think ErieElden, don't spend a lot ot time researching that. The ERIE did indeed go to
(and through) "Y-town."
That's YOUNGSTOWN you know . . . It went so much "through" Youngstown that
after Conrail (sorry
Mike) the mayor made a deal so that the ERIE track would be abandoned, and he
made huge efforts to
obliterate the line through the city. Filled in bridges, built a Science
Museum (now closed)
directly over the line, and a jail ditto.
And YS&T was a very large ERIE (and later EL) customer.
