Mingo Junction: The Panhandle Division of the PRR


Mile Post 47 of Pennsylvania Railroad's Panhandle Division marks the understated stone arch bridge over Cross Creek and Mingo Junction interlocking, where a branch diverged south to the Large Yard facilities serving local steel industry and trackage that continued down the Western Banks of the Ohio River. Mingo Junction is one of many Mill Towns in the Ohio River Valley and contributed heavily to the PRR's business on the division.
