What Bert Has To Say About Altoona Metro Area

Altoona is a historic railroad town and transportation gateway. Its roots are as a company town for the Pennsylvania Railroad, still a major artery today. But after the railroad ceased to be an independent entity, the town’s shops and facilities, which once employed 15,000, went into permanent decline. Its role as a transportation gateway likewise declined when the Pennsylvania Turnpike bypassed the area by 50 miles. A modest amount of light industry has taken the railroad’s place and Interstate 99 now does connect the area with the major east-west Turnpike.
