Back in the 1970's  we used to drive our cars from this site westward up the mountain where the Circus Train lost it's brakes on.  The rails had been removed years earlier, and turned into a dirt road you could travel from the site to Osceola Mills, Pa. Beautiful scenery up in the mountains. This railroad used to be a main traffic lane for coal being mined in Clearfield County, Pa. back in the 1800's into the early 1900's to the Rail road coal stock piles at Tyrone & Altoona, Pa. There is also another site near Gardner Mountain west of this Circus Train crash called the BIG FILL. It is a Rail Road construction site of the rail road back in the 1800's.  The site is a rock filled hollow between two mountains instead of a bridge. There is a creek that runs under the Big Fill named Big Fill Run. My dad used to take my brothers and I there to do some trout fishing and deer hunting back in the 1970's. Today this mountain area is home to many Windmills generating electricity and ruined the landscape beauty. Warning..! Be careful hiking this area. There are many poisonous Copper Head and Rattle Snakes. My grand kids and I have hiked this area and love it there.
The story of a circus train accident has become the stuff of legend in the Pennsylvania town of Tyrone, but some researchers are hunting for more tangible traces of that pileup in the form of a mass grave.

Nobody wants a job. They probably will make out better on welfare. so... Keep them jobs out of the neighborhood so the folks don't get bothered by people working for a living. I mean, folks complain about the clean energy gas industry. Why not complain about the fresh clean water industry too?

You would think it would be cheaper to isolate that area instead of removing 1500 truck loads of waste.  One Thousand Five Hundred Truck Loads. Government 3RD Party Contractors are gonna make a bunch of money.

It's sad the guy was born with the disease. But that doesn't give him the right to put others at risk. Then again if this free sex culture would wake up.........!!!!!!!!!

Some of these cops need to practice their shooting techniques. Shoot to wound and not necessarily to kill.  Just like some of the old Western Hero's did. You would think a wound in the leg would cause the kid to drop his weapon and end the danger of anyone getting hurt. But I wasn't there and I trust most Officers of the Law to take appropriate action.
WAYMART, Pa. (AP) — A district attorney says a man shot and killed in northeastern Pennsylvania earlier this week was carrying a rifle in his arms and had two other rifles slung along his shoulders. Authorities in Wayne County said 21-year-old Derek DeGroat was shot after refusing to drop the ...

Commonsense went out the door when Jimmy Carter went in the White House. The Political Liberal Mindset has caused a lot of our problems in the United States today.

Sad Story. But the Fact remains, the he murdered his wife. Why hasn't he been hung on the Court House Square by now.

Local Farm Family Cemetery located here. Good decent Folks lived about this area when I was a Kid back in the 1960's. We attended here sometimes. Our church was down the Mountain at West Loop, Rd, Hollidaysburg. I can remember riding our bikes all around the Blue Knob Mountain Area. Sometimes our horses would get loose from the field and us kids would spend half the day chasing them down. There used to be an operational Martin's Dairy just down the road where you could buy fresh milk. And just down over the hill in a creek there were real beavers and their Dams. I can remember all the Farmers plowing their fields and raising their cattle. We could always see the church because it is setting on top of a hill where most of the homes in the area could see it. This Area is part of the Blue Knob Community, high in the mountains, with beautiful scenery all about. I love this area and travel back there with my Grand Sons so they can experience the beauty of GOD'S Green Earth. This rural area has changed little in the last 45 years. My Hope is that this Church prospers for the Community in the years to come.

This is one of the Last Old School Truck Stops still in operation. Nice place. As a driver in the Gas Fields, our crew would stop here for fuel and eats. The Diner has great food and the people were friendly. Great place to visit

Working in the Fracking Industry in this area, I enjoyed eating breakfast at the little Family owned restaurant & Country store. Nice folks there in Haneyville. Never stayed at the Cottages though. Us Sand Hauling Truckers liked the convenience of Truck Parking and Home Made breakfasts to start our long days. Reminded me of all those Mom & Pop truck stops of years gone by.

I just listened to Pastor Darell on WJSM 1/18/2014. And his message about the Global warming and the Ships getting stuck in the ice with the Global Warming scientist on board. Ironic. Our GOD of creation is in control and this winter he is showing the world just that. For he created the seasons. I've been thinking about this since they got stuck in the ice and we have been having record breaking cold here in North America. And I see others are of the faith see this also. Maybe when the weather breaks I may come and visit to here Pastor Darell in person.
