The quarterly magazine of the B&O RR Historical Society featured two articles on this line in the spring and summer issues back in 2002. I authored the article in the spring issue and Bill Cramer did the second. The line was known for its double deck bridge over the Allegheny River at Foxburg and its switchback north out of Foxburg through the historical Foxburg Country Club. Traces of the line through the golf course should still be visible.
