Rockcut was the only real geological obstacle between Barberton and Rittman for the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad to overcome. When first constructed, the line used a non-standard 6-foot gauge. As the years went on a third rail was added and later the line was converted to the standard 4ft. 8.5in. used today. While under the control of the Erie Railroad, a second main line was added through the rock cut.
Rockcut was also the location used by the NOT&L for streetcars to cross over the tracks between Barberton and Wadsworth.
