The last runs of the Montour Railroad took place in March, 1984 and were made to recover box and hoppers cars that the P&LE had stored along its subsidiary's main lines and sidings. The cars were brought to Montour Junction and recovered by the P&LE who forwarded them to the Rox and Davis Island for scrapping. SW-1500 #1568 is seen here pulling approaching the Coraopolis-Neville Island Bridge with a batch of box cars from the Montour tracks to those of the P&LE.
