From the NBER Website: Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad is a 87.3 mile short line that interchanges with
Norfolk Southern in Lock Haven and Tyrone and, via trackage, with the Canadian Pacific Railway in Sunbury. The NBER
serves the communities of Lock Haven, Tyrone, Bellefonte, Pleasant Gap, and State College. The infrastructure is owned
by SEDA-COG JRA.
The Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad was established August 1, 1984. The Nittany line dates back to 1857, with
the incorporation of the Tyrone & Lock Haven Railroad to serve the coal and iron industries centered around Milesburg
and Bellefonte. The railroad was renamed the Bald Eagle Valley Railroad in 1861, and in 1864 was acquired by the
Pennsylvania Railroad. Some of the Nittany's trackage was partially abandoned by Conrail in 1982 and 1983. The
Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad preserves rail transportation for industry in Blair, Centre, and Clinton Counties. It hauls
large quantities of stone and general merchandise, and serves as a bridge line for the movement of coal to power
plants. Nittany's blue and white colors honor Penn State University.
