I've written this from scratch. Boy, I'm not really thrilled on the name of this railroad; first, there's not a lot of documentation I've been able to get hold of yet; second, of the two relatively good sources so far, one had Philadelphia and Columbia, the other had Columbia and Philadelphia. I like The Amazing Pennsylvania Canals as a source better, so sticking with that. Further, the historical marker web page has The Columbia-Philadelphia Railroad and its Successor as a source. Well, there you go then. I'll be seeing if I can dig up more information, particularly on its use after the PRR bought it. --Jason S. Colflesh 15:31, 29 July 2007 (CDT)
