Additional Details:
It could be 1910 or 1920 or even 1930 but its 1985. Two steam locomotives, built in the first decade of the twentieth century, cross the famous Rockville Bridge and the Susquehanna River. The bridge, which connects Rockville and Marysville, is a few miles up-stream from Harrisburg, Pa. The stone arch Rockville Bridge was built in 1902 and replaced an earlier structure of steel on stone piers. Occasion for this crossing is the National Railway Historical Society's Convention Special on August 23, 1985. Both locomotives, Atlantic 7002 and American 1223, were built by the railroad's Juniata Shops. The former Pennsylvania Railroad steam locomotives are leased by the Strasburg Rail Road from the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.
