And it all starts with the first program, Trainumentary 1 way back in 2013, right up to episode #22. Aside from the trains, terrains and views, it’s also interesting to observe how much the online video technology improved over the past 10 years.
After winding through the zoo, this mini-train travels across a 200-foot concrete bridge/trestle twice. On the second crossing, on the way back to the station, the trestle comes into full view. The trestle was originally constructed as a bridge across the mighty Mill Creek, which flooded the City of Erie in 1915, killing over 30 people, including the fire chief. The bridge, which also serves as a driftcatcher to prevent further flooding, was constructed in 1916, and updated in 2010. It was adapted for use as a mini-train trestle in the mid 20th century.
