Youngstown & Southern RR
This road started as a steam road and ended as a diesel freight road. The Y&S built from Youngstown to Columbiana (16 miles) in 1904. In 1907 it built another 3 miles to Leetonia where it connected with the Youngstown & Ohio River. At this time it was electrified.
From the very beginning, the Y&S was in the freight business, and interchanged with the Y&OR and the Pittsburgh Lisbon & Western (a steam road).
In 1916, after reorganization, the Y&S was the Youngstown & Suburban. In 1928, the Y&S came under the control of the Montour RR who wanted to use the line for an entry into Youngstown. In 1944 the name was changed back to Youngstown & Southern, and the next year the Y&S took over the PL&W, which was also controlled by the Montour.
Passenger service lasted until 1948, the last Ohio interurban. The Leetonia extension was abandoned later that year, and the line was dieselized before long. Later it became part of the Montour, which was the plan in 1928.
