Did PC operate a passenger train (Washington section of Amtrak's National Limited?) over the Northern Central line between Baltimore and Harrisburg in the early 1970s??

jhdeasy - The Washington-Harrisburg sections of the National Limited (Trains 30 and 31) are shown in Penn Central Timetable No. 7 (November 14, 1971) operating over the Columbia And Port Deposit Branch from Perryville MD to Roy (about 10 miles east of Harrisburg PA).
