 Definition One of the five sections of the Pennsylvania Main Line of Public Works; the canal ran 43 miles from Columbia in the east, where it connected to the Columbia and Philadelphia Railroad, to Duncan's Island in the west, where it met the Juniata Division and the Susquehanna Division.

I wrote this article from scratch. I haven't come across too much I can use for this Division yet; it seems to have singularly disappeared compared to the other canals - I think the entire length has been abandoned. Pretty much every other canal has *some* length of it currently in a private or public park, but I'm not finding anything for this. However, I've put a bit more into the contributing factors on the sale of the Main Line (this will be getting polished up more and passed around). --Jason S. Colflesh 22:24, 30 July 2007 (CDT)
