I was on this line about 5 years ago and it is almost all built on. The first half mile or so up to a bridge near I-79 has some track if I remember correctly, but once you get beyond Treveskyn it is almost all built in. You can't even make the grade out in most places. I had to use old topos to find out where this track ran in most places.
