Remarks & Notes 
3 Wheeling and Lake Erie "tigers" brake hard with an Empty Coke train coming down Bakerstown grade on Buffalo & Pittsburgh's portion of the P&W sub, ahead of this train about 3/4 of a mile is AVR junction (MP 17) where this train will go onto AVR's portion the P&W sub. This train is a part of the Current day 'Alphabet Route' loaded in Monessen PA at the Wheeling and Lake Erie's Arcelor Mittal's Koppers Coke Plant, then taken to the AVR in Bruceton, and the AVR brings it to the B&P Via the P&W sub in Evans City to take to Buffalo. Once in Buffalo the coke is transloaded into trucks for shipment into Canada, Possibly for Arcelor Mittal's steel mill in Hamilton Ontario. When That's all done the Empty hoppers are brought back on the same route.
