The Pittsburgh and Ohio Central Railroad (reporting mark POHC) is a short-line railroad operating 35 miles of track over the Chartiers Branch in southwest Pennsylvania. It also operated a small portion of the former Panhandle Route until 2015, but Distributor Services, the Panhandle's only customer, decided to stop shipping by train. It is owned by the Ohio Central Railroad System, which is a division of the rail holding company Genesee & Wyoming Inc.
The P&OHC was formed after the purchase by Genesse & Wyoming of the former Pittsburgh Industrial Railroad from RailAmerica, Inc. in 2000. The line has track extending from its office in the McKees Rocks north to Neville Island and south to Arden in South Strabane Township. A short branch line serves Carnegie. Major commodities hauled include chemicals, minerals, plastics, and steel.
