The Heritage Route is mapped and described in a brochure available from the Southwestern Pennsylvania Heritage Preservation Commission, P.O. Box 565, Hollidaysburg, PA16648, or from the state Department of Commerce (800-VISIT-PA). The visitors’ bureaus of both Blair County, home of Altoona (814-943-4183), and Cambria County, where Johnstown is (800-84-ALTOONA), offer information packages about local attractions and accommodations, including everything mentioned in this article. Horseshoe Curve National Historic Landmark (814-946-0834) makes available a schedule of some forty trains that pass through most days. The curve is open every day, except Mondays in winter and Christmas; the Portage Railroad is open every day except Christmas.
