Rockville Bridge Postcard
This postcard shows the first train to cross the stone-arch Rockville Bridge on March 30, 1902. D16a 4-4-0 #30 is shown pulling train #20, the eastbound "Atlantic Express". Dan Cupper's book, Rockville Bridge, Rails Across the Susquehanna (Whithers Publishing ©2002) is an excellent source of information on the famous bridge. This card was postmarked October 25, 1906 in Marysville, Pa., the town on the west end of the bridge across the river from Rockville.
