Harrisburg Web Page


The Pennsylvania Railroad Technical & Historical Society meets in Camp Hill, across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, next weekend. Todd Sestero has done a great service for visitors and future railfans, a comprehensive guide to rail fanning in the Harrisburg area. It contains a wealth of maps, directions and photographs. Since I grew up hard by the Enola Yard and spent many happy hours at the station in Harrisburg watching Pennsylvania Railroad passenger trains, this is a resource I’m happy to pass along. Thanks to Todd for permission to use these pictures. These three pictures are, in descending order, the south elevation of the station, Harris Tower (restored) and AMTRAK action at Harrisburg. See the rest here.

    I had the pleasure of riding from Harrisburg to Philadelphia. Amtrak, of course, but it was fun to ride the Pennsy rails, with Gary Rowe pointing out landmarks of times gone by. Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm and knowledge!
