A mix of steam and diesel can be found at Renovo in this 1956 scene. Founded during the Civil War when the tracks were put down, Renovo's population neared 4,000 in 1920 after the railroad came to town and set up shops. In 2000, it was somewhere around 1,000, the shops and jobs gone. A Susquehanna river town subject to perennial flooding that owed its existence to the RR and the jobs it once provided is slowly fading away, but on this day, there are juicy photo subjects with every turn. PRR Class EF17.
