Connellsville, PA

Connellsville was founded in 1793 and later became a major center for coal mining. The Great Allegheny Passage, is a rail-trail that runs between Pittsburg and Cumberland, MD. It is based on an abandoned roadbed that runs parallel (usually to the south) of the former Baltimore and Ohio RR line which became part of CSX and which is the line used by Amtrak for the Capitol Limited. Between Connellsville and Cumberland, the trail runs on the abandoned Connellsville subdivision of the defunct Western Maryland Railway, and portions of that trail are occasionally visible from the Capitol Limited.
