Long Description:
Description: 1967 AT TITUSVILLE. AT TITUSVILLE, CRAWFORD COUNTY, ABOUT 0.2 MILE SOUTH OF THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD STATION, AT BRIDGE 120.70 OVER OIL CREEK, IN THE TOP OF THE WEST SIDE OF THE SOUTH CONCRETE BRIDGE SEAT, 12 FEET EAST OF THE WEST END, 15 FEET WEST OF THE WEST RAIL, AND ABOUT 5 FEET LOWER THAN THE TRACK.
