West Union is the location of Pennsylvania Printing. This industry receives boxcars of paper but ships printed material by truck. There is a 10 car runaround track here that makes life easier for the Waynesburg turn crew.  Cars can be pulled from Pennsylvania Printing on the southbound trip but left in the runaround.  That facilitates the makeup of the northbound train in Waynesburg.  The cars from West Union are then picked up from the runaround track on the trip north.  The dispatcher doesn’t seem to know about this track and has not, in recent history at least, ever tried to use it for a meet.  Click here for a track plan for West Union.
