Norfolk Southern train 20T rolls eastbound on the picturesque stone arch bridge over Shermans Creek at Duncannon, PA on November 14, 2014. This location is 15 miles west of Harrisburg, PA on the former Pennsylvania Railroad’s Middle Division, now Norfolk Southern’s Pittsburgh Division. Leading 20T is SD70ACe No. 1071 in the tangerine and blue scheme of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, one of 20 diesels which Norfolk Southern painted in predecessor railroads’ paint schemes to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the merger of Southern Railway and Norfolk & Western to form NS in 1982. In the background is Susquehanna River, about a half mile wide here.
