The weed covered former Erie Lackawanna main was host to this Creston Turn swapping trains with the N&W in Creston, Ohio July 1979. The EL and N&W had interchanged ore trains here for years, but with the advent of Conrail, the end of the Republic contract, and the general decline in Youngstown steel making, these moves were on borrowed time. They originated in Brier Hill and traveled the old KM Division to Creston, the next town west of the more well known Sterling, where empties were exchanged for loads of ore off the N&W. While the N&W through here is today's Wheeling, you'd never even know the EL ran through here as all traces are gone.
