B&O Middletown Branch

The B&O branch from Overpeck to Middletown, Ohio was built for the express purpose of serving the massive steel mill belonging to the American Rolling Mills (ARMCO), now owned by AK Steel.  CSX still uses this line daily as its Middletown Subdivision of the Louisville Division.
