Besides capturing the imagination of many, trains also hold a historical significance to the Pennsylvania Wilds. In 1882, the Kinzua Viaduct (Kinzua Bridge) was first constructed as an alternative route to transport coal, oil, and timber by train. When the bridge could no longer support the weight of heavier steel trains, the viaduct underwent its own steel restoration project in 1900. Eventually, the bridge became a popular passageway for excursion trains, and these trips brought thousands of visitors who wished to see this railroad masterpiece up close. Now, you can keep your own railroad masterpiece up close with these copper train-themed mini charms on a silver ball chain. These train-stamped charms can pay homage to the locomotive history within the Pennsylvania Wilds or just display your love of trains in general wherever you may travel!
