...Also when did the Penn Central abandon the Lebanon Branch, PA line?  Any 
information would be greatly appreciated.

Don, is the branch that you are talking about is the ex PRR branch between 
Conewago and Lebanon PA? If so, looking thru my old PC Eastern Region 
Timetables it is listed as the Lebanon Secondary Track in all the timetables 
between #1 (Apr 28 '68) thru #8 (Apr 30 '72) Looking at a copy of the 
Evaluation of the U.S. Railway Association's Preliminary System Plan dated 
April 28 '75. The 5.6 mile section of this line between Lebanon and Cornwall 
" This PC line is out of service because of flood damage in June 1972; 
service is being provided by the Reading Company." The portion of this line 
between Conewago and Cornwall is listed under "lines not being served". So 
my best guess is that in 1972 after the flood. With service being provided 
by the on the northern end provided by the RDG.
