I've been traveling on I 80 recently and I noticed that about 5 - 10 miles east of Clearfeild an old abandoned Rail bridge. What railline was this at one time? Let me know if you know!

I think you are talking about the old PRR Snow Shoe Branch

I'm thinking he saw the viaduct a mile or so east of Kylertown. If so, it's left over from the New York Central's Beech Creek subsidiary. True, the PRR's Snow Shoe branch was in that part of the world, but I don't recall any bridges left from it which are visible from I-80.

Formerly part of NYC's Beech Creek Branch, it's now part of the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails system (and is visible from I80).

For a really great virtual tour of the branch, check out mike_nepa's thread in the NYC subforum:
