Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, was a very busy railroad town in its early years. In addition to the Pennsylvania Railroad, it was also home to the Bellefonte Central Railroad (1882-1984) and the Central Pennsylvania Railroad (1891-1918).


Michael Bezilla has co-authored two awesome books on the subject. Rails to Penn State: The Story of the Bellefonte Central Railroad and Branch Line Empires: The Pennsylvania and the New York Central Railroads.

The Northern Central Railway originally ran from Baltmore, Md. to Sodus Point, N.Y. It was assimilated into the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1911. Thereafter it was segmented into various divisions and names. Only the segment from Baltimore to Wago Junction, Pa., retained the original name of the Northern Central Railway.
