The Devault local begins its trip to the American Sweeteners Plant, located near the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Devault, PA. Its route is an eclectic one, as it will traverse the Reading's Perkiomen Branch to the other side of the Schuylkill River, then cross it again on the Pennsy's Schuylkill Division, and finally use the Devault branch to acess the plant. Although this line saw heavy use under Conrail, today the American Sweeteners Plant has moved and the Devault branch is out of service.
