- Short lines get flood damage aid
Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell has announced grants totaling $3.5
million to five short lines to help pay for repairing infrastructure
damaged by Hurricane Ivan's floods last fall. Allegheny Valley Railroad
gets $687,689; Delaware & Hudson, $392,000; Lackawanna County Rail
Authority, $100,000; Pittsburgh & Ohio Central, $2.1 million; and
Wheeling & Lake Erie, $267,770.
(Funny that CP would call former D&H as a short line and reap the $$$)
