Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad Company

Nittany & Bald Eagle Milesburg, PA - The Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad, established August 1, 1984, is a seventy mile line serving the communities of Lock Haven, Tyrone, Bellefonte, and State College. The Nittany line dates back to 1857, with the incorporation of the Tyrone & Lock Haven RR to serve the coal and iron industries centered around Milesburg and Bellefonte. The railroad was renamed the Bald Eagle Valley RR in 1861, and in 1864 was acqured by the Pennsylvania RR. Some of the Nittany's trackage was partially abandoned by Conrail in 1982 and 1983. The Nittany & Bald Eagle preserves rail transportation for industry in Blair, Centre, and Clinton Counties, hauling large quantities of stone and general merchandise, and serving as a bridge line for the movement of coal to power plants. Nittany's blue and white colors honor Penn State Univeristy.
