Horseshoe Curve

The Horseshoe Curve is an engineering marvel that was built in 1854 by some 450 immigrant workers, hired by the Pennsylvania Railroad to build a landbridge to support railroad tracks that would go over the Allegheny Ridge. Through its 150 years in operation, the Curve has remained one of the most important links for westward freight and passenger travel by rail, and has become a world-renowned site for train watching and an icon for railroad heritage in Pennsylvania.
