NKP 765 and the NS Employee Appreciation Specials

Postby Schuylkill Valley » Fri Aug 17, 2012 12:26 pm

This came through an Email sent out to the Yahoo NS Harrisburg Line members.
"
For those of you coming to the Harrisburg area this weekend to enjoy and record the sights and sounds of NKP 765 and the NS Employee Appreciation Specials, just thought I'd pass this info on to you.

Some of the most scenic and photogenic vantage points on the Harrisburg side of the river - Rockville Bridge and the Front St area near the bridge, the Linglestown Rd. / Rt. 39 overpass, the Lucknow St. and 6th St area - all lie within Susquehanna Township. The Susquehanna Twp. Police Department are aware of the festivities this weekend, and will be doing extra patrolling in those areas. (Note that NS's Harrisburg Division HQ is about 1 mile east of the overpass on Linglestown Rd, and the STPD HQ is a couple blocks east of there.)

This is not to ruin anyone's enjoyment of the weekend, but with expected crowds in those areas and limited parking at some locales, they want to ensure the safety of everyone, railfan and public. So I would just caution everyone to obey speed limits, etc, and be safe, smart, and not be over-zealous in your driving while enjoying the weekend activities. "
