Harpers Ferry freight train

Published on: Author: admin

Two railroads come together at Harpers Ferry, the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road, which runs along the Potomac River, and the Winchester and Shenandoah Rail Road. They cross the Potomac on bridges which converge at the mouth of a tunnel in the black cliff on the other side of the river. The sound of American engine whistles echoing off the rock faces in this beautiful and historically significant location is deeply evocative.
