AQUEDUCT


PT 122

West of Duncannon, the mainline enters a heavily forested and a steep banked area of the Juniata River known as Aqueduct. Luckily for us, we have a vantage point of the an ex-PRR signal bridge from the RT 11/15 span over the Juniata River! Once past the steep banked area, the land opens up to farmland. The Aqueduct DED at PT 122.6 is located just north (railroad west) of the Linton Hill Rd crossing. Those who (or will) railfan to the east at Duncannon or Cove will find this detector very handy!

In mid December 2012, NS installed crossing gates at the Linton Hill Rd crossing.
