Also, don't forget about Victor Balata Belting, located at the S 25th St. Xing. Doubt they got much service if at all in the CR era though.

Someone posted here a list of customers on the E&N and the cars billed per year. I couldn't believe the # of customers on that line. I think there is only 2 remaining. Even the bakery was a customer, I think they got flour. But on the arials going back to the 50s I never saw any cars spotted nor do I know where their siding was can't find a trace of it.

I just noticed that the row as it went thru the Tatamy Farm Bureau in the town of Tatamy has been severed. TFB built an extention of their building over the row. So CR must have sold them the land. The row went right thru their property and inbetween several of their buildings. There is a square structure built directly on the row. To compensate the rail-trail swings to the right around this building. I bet CR sold the land on purpose to TFB so rail service could not be restored.
