I think it was the B,C, AND Z and had the nik name of bent crooked and zigzag because of all the curves and wrecks they had.

I used to run a train down the old Pvine, its hilly and curvy down thru there, then you get just outside of cincy and they always hold you there for 5 or 6 hours I hated it. They dont run any trains that way anymore.
