N&W Bridge over Youghiogheny River at Connellsville, PA

(Bridge Hunter, no Historic Bridges, Satellite)

Both Bridge Hunter and the caption below agree that Pittsburgh & West Virginia Railway built the ca 1930 bridge and Norfolk & Western Railway bought P&WV. However, my 1928 RR Atlas shows just B&O and Pennsy running through Connellsville. The OpenRailwayMap shows the abandoned line, but I can't find label (railroad names) for any of the lines.
