Horseshoe Curve is the three-track (formerly four-track) railroad curve on the Norfolk Southern Railway’s (NS) Pittsburgh Line, the former Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) mainline, between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Approximately 50 freight trains travel the Curve each day.

The 360 camera can pan the entire curve, when an operator is available. During the daytime hours when an operator is not present the camera is placed on an automatic script (program), which does auto pans from one predetermined position to another, but it is not capable of panning with the movement/direction of a passing train.

Amtrak’s “Pennsylvanian” passenger train (between New York City and Pittsburgh via Philadelphia) passes this camera twice daily, once per direction.

There is an ATCS layout available, with server (data) coverage to the east of the Curve down in Altoona itself.

There is a radio stream available, see link above. You will also hear conversations (between the dispatcher and crews) from said radio feed being broadcast over the speaker at the Curve.

The engine on display is former PRR GP9 #7048, built by EMD in December 1955 in Order #5408, to Penn Central (PC) #7048, to Conrail (CR) #7048, then donated for display.

When’s the next train? Yeah, we get this a lot. There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.

Virtual Railfan currently has 33 cams from 3 countries. Visit our website for memberships, more free cams, and our own live chat. Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you’re here!

Know a good location for a camera? We’d love to hear! Please email us at If you have any contacts in the area, please let us know.

Dobbin House Gettysburg Pennsylvania travel vlog | Foodie Review #RaptorAdventures

We explored The Dobbin House in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for today’s travel vlog. We enjoyed casual culinary delight in the Tavern and perused the curiosity store for some fun souvenirs to take home. All in all, it was a great way to spend the afternoon. If you’re going to be in the Gettysburg area you should definitely make this delightful destination a priority! They also have a Bed & Breakfast, but we were not able to see the accommodations this visit. We love checking out new restaurants and giving you a review from a foodie perspective. We also saw some wild deer.
