Black and White Photograph
A Pennsylvania Railroad train soon will pass under the Erie Railroad's Portage High Bridge in this 1951 photograph. The train is heading south along what had been a century earlier the route of the Genesee Valley Canal. Train service on the tracks ended around 1963. The old canal and rail route is now Trail 7 in the Park.
