About This Company

The Erie & Pittsburgh Railroad was chartered in 1858 and was completed in 1864 between New Castle and Girard Junction, with trackage rights obtained from the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern to access Erie. In 1870, the Pennsylvania Railroad leased the E&P for 999 years. While under lease, the company continued to exist, receiving lease payments from the PRR and later the Penn Central.

During most of its life, the line hauled coal from the lines south of Pittsburgh to the docks in Erie. The line also supported the heavy industry in New Castle and the Wheatland/Farrell/Sharon area. North of Jamestown, there were few online industries.

Not long after Penn Central was formed, a connection was added at Jamestown that allowed northbound trains to use the ex-NYC Stoneboro Branch to reach Ashtabula. The connection spelled the end of the northern part of the E&P, as the line was abandoned north of Jamestown in the early 1970s. By 1972 the diamond with the Norfolk & Western at Thornton Junction had been removed. After Conrail was formed, the line between the north end of New Castle and Wheatland was put out of service, along with much of the line from Sharpsville to Jamestown.
