Nice little place to watch trains go by and just relax. Full size caboose on the property for the kids to examine and picnic tables to have a picnic and enjoy the area. The location is situated alongside the railroad tracks so a close up view of the passing train is a treat.
This is trackside, on the former Pennsylvania Railroad 3-track main line, now owned by the Norfolk Southern. Plenty of trains to keep you occupied. Older caboose, raised platforms for viewing, electrical outlets for your computers. Very clean and kept up. Good parking areas.
I visited the Cresson Heritage Park during a recent visit to Cresson, PA....The location is popular with trainbuffs as it is adjacent to the busy Norfolk Southern Pittsburgh Mainline....which sees upwards of 50-60 trains per day.....A locomotive servicing facility is located across the tracks from the park as well....Local power and pusher engines are fueled and sanded here.
We recently stopped here on our road trip
This is a great place to watch trains there is quite a bit of Northfolk Southern traffic
There is also a Amtrak traffic twice daily
It's a cute little park with a picnic area and seating available
There's also a train platform to watch the train to go by
There are some...
This place is a wonderful place to see trains day and night. I'm here a lot for them. This is one of the only places in Cresson near the tracks where you are not considered trespassing on railroad property.
