Pennsylvania Midland RR...?

Hello all.  I was having a discussion with my soon-to-be father in-law when he asked me if I ever took pictures of the rail line that had run through Berrysburg?  I hadn't heard of one, nor taken notice to anything railroad related in the town.  Thanks to a few maps sites, FIL's information and Google, I found out that the Pennsylvania Midland RR was a line that was supposed to branch off of the old Northern Central (PRR Susquehanna Division) at Millersburg and terminate in Ashland.  I can't seem to find the branch on any maps, though a look on Open Street Maps shows...
 

 
If anyone has more information on the PMRR, please post it here.  The FIL also told me there are remains of concrete pillars beside Route 25 (East Market Street) that may or may not have been for a trestle or bridge over the road.  When I get to Berrysburg this weekend, I'll be sure to have my camera to see what I can find.
