Railroad Bridges over the Canal

Historic Harpers Ferry is mostly historic for John Brown's raid on the town. His goal was to spark a anti-slavery revolution, but instead he just managed to get a couple paragraphs in every high-school history textbook. In visiting the town, we also learned of its importance as a transit route, including canals and railroads, which is actually kind of boring as history goes. But the view of these railroad bridges going over the canal and through a tunnel was kind of nice.
