Road numbers INT 5658, P&LE 75736

The INTERSTATE Railroad (INT), of southwest Virginia, extended from the Clinchfield RR and ran parallel to the N&W RR, L&N RR, and SOUTHERN RR at various points, but diversified, having many Lines and Spurs running into the mountains of the Kentucky border. The company still exists as a subsidiary of the Norfolk Southern Corporation, but is operated as an NS RR Line. 


The Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad (P&LE) formed in 1875. Headquarted in Pittsburgh, PA, the P&LE connected Pittsburgh with Youngstown, OH in the west and Connellsville, PA to the east. A specialized railroad, the "Little Giant" moved boundless tonnage, serving the steel mills of the Pittsburgh area, which consumed and shipped vast amounts of coal, coke, iron ore, limestone and steel. When the great steel mills closed the P&LE ceased independence and was absorbed by CSX. 


HEAP SHIELDS were often added to the hopper-ends to prevent spillage and waste on curvy, steep mountain trackage which demanded much stop-and-go progress. Hay Bros. created the realistic coal loads.
