GRANVILLE


PT 169

West of Lewistown, the mainline crosses back to the south side of the Juniata River on Mayes Bridge. Just west of Mayes bridge sits the next full crossover: LONG. The interlocking is also where the Lewistown Yard lead joins the mainline from the east.

PT 168.2 - Mayes Bridge

The Mayes Bridge, built in 1905, can be seen by turning onto River Rd from RT 103 at Granville. The PA Fish & Boat Commission's Granville Access is a perfect spot to park and view the bridge. Further down, the road passes under the western most arch of the bridge. At the road underpass, an interesting stone engraving commemorates the Chief Engineers and the construction firms who built the Mayes Bridge. Note the old stone piers still stand from the original PRR double track bridge.

2) Eastbound 26T crosses over Mayes Bridge in the late autumn.

PT 168.8 - LONG

From the Granville Rd crossing in the middle of the village, LONG can be seen to the east and can be photographed with a telephoto lens. The mainline curves south as it heads west to the long straight before Anderson.
