Volume 3 - Railfan Excursion To Northumberland, PA


This video revisits an NRHS excursion special pulled by PRR class L-1's Engine No.559 in October 20, 1957, to Northumberland, Pennsylvania, home of the Pennsy RR historically preserved steam engine collection and equipment. In later years went to the State RR Museum in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. After that, we visit the Rockville Bridge and Horseshoe Curve and see the static display of PRR K-4's, No.1361 in 1957. Then we move up to August 27, 1988, and see the restored PRR 1361 at York, Pennsylvania to help celebrate 150 years of railroading in the York area with some special excursions around the area.

The original color film was taken in 1957, 1988 and is 35 minutes in length.
