Hello, I just discovered this site, and am very excited to explore! I have a question about this particular branch just outside my hometown. I've been to an area between Altoona and Antis Township that is currently an ATV trail, and it contains several pieces of derelict rolling stock dating from the PRR/NYC all the way to Conrail. There is one track still intact. Is this part of it? Is there any other information anyone can help me with?
Where exactly are you referring to? I'm an engineer out of Altoona and am unfamiliar with any such location that is not in Altoona Yard, or the display at Bellwood Park.
Do you have any pictures or information about The Bellwood Branch? Please
