Lock Haven, Pennsylvania

(map) An hour and change north-east of Altoona, Lock Haven is the interchange point between NS and the Nittany and Bald Eagle and the northern end of the Nittany and Bald Eagle's operation.

December 29th, 2006

We took off from Altoona northward searching for shortlines, stopping to check the NS/Nittany and Bald Eagle interchange at Tyrone and their base at Lock Haven, shot the RDCs at Bellefonte, and returned to the other side of Altoona to hunt for the Everett at Hollidaysburg, following their tracks until we found them switching at Roaring Spring before heading to Gallitzin for one coming out of the tunnel and wrapping up the day at Cresson and Lilly.
