The railroad of the Indian Creek Valley Railway Company, herein called the Indian Creek Valley Railway, is a single-track, standard-gage, steam railroad, located in southwestern Pennsylvania. The main line extends northeasterly from Indian Creek to Jones Mills, 18.899 miles, with a branch line projecting from Hutchinson to Mill Run, aggregating 20.112 miles of main track. The company also owns 2.889 miles of yard tracks and sidings. Its road thus embraces 23.001 miles of all tracks wholly owned and used.


The Indian Creek Valley Railway was incorporated May 21, 1902, under the general laws of Pennsylvania. It acquired as of September 27, 1906, the rights and franchises of The Youghiogheny & Ligonier Valley Railroad Company, and as of May 12, 1911, the rights and franchises of the Rockwood & Bakersville Railway Company, which had been incorporated April 23, 1906, and May 21, 1907, respectively, under the general laws of Pennsylvania.


The road owned, 20.112 miles, was acquired by construction. All of the road, with the exception of 0.59 mile built in 1915, was constructed during the period from 1906 to 1910. The foregoing does not include 0.184 mile of road at Indian Creek built in 1912 and owned jointly with the Baltimore and Ohio in Pennsylvania.
