Buffalo & Pittsburgh

The Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad is a regional mainline hauler featuring over 400 miles of trackage in western Pennsylvania and southwestern New York. Created in 1988 by the Genessee & Wyoming railroad group, the operation is made up of former Baltimore & Ohio (ex Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh) trackage as well as a handful of merged shortlines. The primary line runs from Buffalo, New York south and west to Eidenau, Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. A key secondary line connects Johnsonburg northwest to Erie, utilizing the former Allegheny & Eastern Railroad. CSX Transportation leases its P&W Subdivision to the BPRR between Allison Park and its yard in West Pittsburgh, just outside of New Castle, Pa. Various smaller branchlines are maintained across the system. Interchange is handled with a variety of roads in the region: Allegheny Valley, Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, CSX Transportation, Nittany & Bald Eagle, Norfolk Southern, Rochester & Southern , and the Western New York & Pennsylvania. Locomotive shops are maintained at Butler, Pa.
