Located near Butler, PA at the intersection of State Routes 68 and 422, the Buffalo and Pittsburgh is a small, yet seemingly thriving railroad. Here, a GP-9 sits probably acquired for overflow service, or awaiting repairs and repaint.

The B&P has a paint scheme reminiscent of BNSF's Heritage livery.

Geep stays cool in the shade.

This little railroad has alot going on around it and sits right next to a four track main.

It doesn't look like this chop nose Geep has moved in awhile.

There isn't much to the B&P, but it is interesting nonetheless.

The B&P is a Geep road.

Three oddball first generation Geeps are silent on a siding.

A pair of switchers sit inside the engine house.

One sanding tower is all that is needed on the Buffalo & Pittsburgh.
