We are on the ex-Pennsy Pittsburgh mainline just east of South Fork, PA. We are standing on the bridge abutment of the old flyover. PRR used these to get from one side the 4 track mainline to the other without the use of crossovers which would tie up the mainline. Flyovers where used in many places on the PRR. There are none in use today on the Pittsburgh mainline that I know of. We watch a east bound manifest train pass with three units working hard up grade. A west bound train meets the east bound, also with three units and is drifting down grade past the camera. We then spot the helpers working hard shoving the train toward Altoona. They meet the west bound helpers just to the east of me, and they drift down past the camera. The topography of the Pittsburgh main warrants helpers in both directions, as the railroad is like a roller-coaster all the way from Altoona to Pittsburgh. It is one fascinating piece of railroad. Video was taken with a VHS camera on April 20th, 1994. Thanks for watching, Jackmp294.5™...
