History

The Horseshoe Curve (Pennsylvania) Curve, a famous curved section of track owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad, has become a tourism attraction and National Historic Landmark. Because it was the industrial link to the western US, the Horseshoe Curve was a primary target of eight Nazism saboteurs who had infiltrated the United States during World War II (1942) by being dropped off by Kriegsmarine U-Boats ('see Operation Pastorius').In the early 20th century, the Railroad's Altoona Works complex employed, at its peak, approximately 15,000 people and covered three miles (5 km) in length, 218 acres (880,000 m²) of yards and 37 acres (150,000 m²) of indoor workshop floor space in 122 buildings. Today, Altoona serves as the corporate home to Sheetz, a rapidly growing convenience store chain in the United States. Altoona is home to the world's oldest wooden roller coaster, the Leap the Dips, located in Lakemont Park. It now has over 330 locations throughout Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.
