Remarks & Notes 
URR 8 switches in the confines of what is left of the former National Tube works in Mckeesport. The Mckeesport Connecting uses two Union SW1500's, #6 and 8 to switch out US steels Tube works. This small shortline/industrial switching outfit has seen a massive increase in business thanks to the marcellus shale gas projects that are going on all over the country.
