Was there ever rail service serving Williamsport, PA? I'm curious considering this week is the week of the Little League World Series. It would be interesting to have a route through the I-80 corridor between Chicago and New York going around Williamsport and the Pocono Mountains. Distance wise it would be shorter than the LSL or a dream BL although there would be almost no one living between Cleveland and New York (although when has that ever stopped Amtrak before?)


Trains Traveled:
 
Broadway Limited (CHI-Harrisburg, PA) 
Three Rivers (Harrisburg, PA-CHI, Altoona, PA-CHI, PHL-CHI)
Capitol Limited (CHI-WAS)
Lake Short Limited (NYP-CHI)
Silver Meteor (PHL-ORL)
Southwest Chief (CHI-LAX)
California Zephyr (CHI-SLC, SLC-EMY)
City of New Orleans and/or Illini (CHI-Champaign, IL)

 

Bring back the Broadway Limited (or Three Rivers or any Chicago-Pittsburgh-Philly train)!
