Mainline Corridor

Front Street
Cresson, PA 16630

Travel the Mainline corridor for the best train watching spots!

The three-track Norfolk Southern mainline carries over 70 trains per day between Johnstown and Altoona.  Great viewing spots and photo opportunities: Horeseshoe Curve, near Altoona; along PA Rt. 53 at Gallitzin Tunnels, Cresson, Lilly, Cassandra, Portage, Summerhill and South Fork.

Many Rt. 53 towns have viewing parks and picnic areas near the mainline, including Cresson Area Heritage Park, featuring an N5C Caboose and a rail observation platform located parallel to the tracks for an ideal photo-taking spot.
