Rockville Bridge and Newport to Lewistown PA

On July 18th, 1998 we visited the Harrisburg PA area and got the pictures of the Rockville Bridge. Thanks go to the Eastern Rail News for their article on railfaning the Harrisburg area.

On April 3rd, 1999 we visited Newport PA and then west to Lewistown PA. Thanks to Railpace for their excellent April 99 article on railfanning Newport.

The "Three Rivers" begins to detrain its Lewistown passengers. No hurry today as the train is several minutes early. By the time it gets to Huntington it will be late due to a slow order at the sight of last weeks derailment.
