LOSH'S RUN


PT 124

The narrow strip of farmland at Losh's Run is cleanly split in two by the mainline. Due to the north to south orientation of the track, eastbound movements are favorable throughout the day. Losh's Run Rd parallels the mainline north to south while smaller farm roads branch off towards the tracks. Losh's Run Rd becomes Lower Bailey Rd, but is now closed near PT 126. To get to Bailey, one must now circle around towards Newport to get to Bailey.

PT 123.8 - Bretz Lane Crossing

At this crossing, the westbound PT 124 signals can be seen to the north.

1) Westbound 11J approaches the Bretz Lane crossing on track 2
2) Eastbound 64J passes the signal cabinet at the crossing. Note the PT 124 signals in the distance

PT 124.4 - Short Road Crossing

Just west of Losh's Run (the small stream, which the village is named after), Short Road, a public dirt road, parallels the Run towards the Juniata River, ultimately crossing the mainline at grade. From here, the PT 124 signals can be seen to the south.
