Discovering the Railroaders Memorial Museum in Altoona, Pennsylvania - UncoveringPA

The Railroaders Memorial Museum in Altoona, Pennsylvania, covers the history of railroading in this central PA city, and what life was like for workers and their families.

In June 1891 a railroad transfer boat named the Vice President began operating between Cape Girardeau and East Cape Girardeau, Ill. Louis Houck was responsible for bringing the line to the city. The boat, at times working day and night, ferried railroad cars across the Mississippi River, using specialy built inclines on both sides of the river. The Vice President burned at Cape Girardeau in February 1892, but was shortly replaced.

Railroads have played a role in the history of Cape Girardeau. Here is a collection of photos from the history of rail travel in the area, taken from the Southeast Missourian archives.

Those Great Northern boxcars are fouling the main track, however, necessitating a bit of switching until the train can continue on to Withrow. This line was abandoned--along with the use of 40 foot boxcars for grain haulage--in 1985."
