Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



railroad crosses the Susquehanna river upon a long and magnificent iron bridge to its junction with the Pennsylvania and the Northern Central in the union station. The magnificent panorama which is spread out before the passenger crossing this bridge is one long to be remembered. Gettysburg is reached by a road from Carlisle, and great inducements are offered to visitors to that great battle-field and beautiful summer resort.

The station house of the Cumberland Valley Railroad at Hagerstown is a much finer and more beautiful structure than is usually found in the largest cities for this purpose. In it is a restaurant conducted under the management of the company. Col. T. B. Kennedy has been the President and Mr. H. A. Riddle General Passenger and Freight Agent of the road for years, and under their far sighted and wise policy it has continued upon a career of unexampled prosperity.
