Johnburg is an imaginary town in Central Pennsylvania were the Baltimore & Ohio and Reading Railroads meet.
Both railroads now terminate at Johnburg though previously freight trains had extended to coal mines further up the Valley of the Whisky Run.
The station remains highly active with passengers, coal from the Grisedale Coal & Coke Co Coal loader,
Trailer on Flat Car from the ramp based on the former CNW ramp in Huron SD, and general freight.
