The State Of Pennsylvania has some great railroad watching spots and some great history. In this edition, we will start to look at some of the sites along the Pennsylvania Heritage Corridor. The first stop is the Town of Johnstown. This town is probably known for its Flood than having a unique railroad that runs cars and pedestrians up the side of a mountain. It’s called the Incline Plane Railway.  The railway takes people and sometimes their cars from downtown Johnstown to the neighborhood above. There is a great restaurant on top and old time Incline.  Here is what it looks like driving up to the incline from the town, across the bridge.
