In keeping with this theme, on this date in 1929, the last passenger train ran between LaOtto and Columbia City, per Today in PRR History. Does that mean the section all the way to Butler had previously been discontinued? I personally don't know.

September 28, 1929 The Pennsylvania Railroad runs its last passenger train between LaOtto and Columbia City IN.
