Info on Pittsburgh & Western : LUSENET : Shortline, Narrow Gauge and Industrial Railroading : One Thread

I've begun research on the Pittsburgh & Western, a major narrow gauge in northwestern PA in the late 19th century. Taken over by the B&O, it was gradually st. gauged northward, a job that was completed by 1911. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with info, photos beyond what Hilton has, and suggestions about where more info might be found - esp. libraries, historical societies, etc. Thanks!
