Sand Patch, Pennsyltucky

Cumberland, MD to Connellsville, PA

I don't know much about the Sand Patch, but train buffs seek it out for photo opportunities and just plain train watching. It's countrified hill country in southwestern Pennsylvania.

I prepared these maps using DeLorme Street Atlas version 9. One shows the lay of the rails without the highways getting in the way.

The second has the highways overlaid, although I doubt that you could use this one to navigate by.

The local map is a close-up of the Sand Patch locale, but do not trust the small streets shown there. Some might be private driveways or might not even exist.

After a long day chasing trains, head east to Hancock, Maryland for a home cooked meal at Park-N-Dine. Man, they can cook there! The turkey sandwich with gravy is their specialty and won't leave you hungry, that's for sure. Hint: you eat it with a fork.
