Our final new park on this journey was in the mountains of central Pennsylvania. A system of five steam engines on each side of the mountains, 10 in all, lifted canal barges up one side and down the other. They were pulled short distances in between by very early steam locomotives. This was a major engineering feat completed in 1834 that allowed for goods and people to move more easily between the east and west sides of the state. This photo is of a reconstruction of one of the engine houses.
