Harrisburg Depot is used as the Transportation Center for bus and train. I can take the bus to Harrisburg to catch the train and enjoy a walk around Harrisburg while I'm waiting.

This building, as is true of many older train stations, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It has a unique style, the Queen Anne style, and a unique train shed structure. In 1922 over 100 trains arrived and departed at the station each day. Now you can catch a train to Chicago once a day or the more frequent trains to Philadelphia.

To log this cache, you need to email me the answers to 2 questions:
1) What time of day did the original portion of the present building open?
2) How many train station structures have been built at this site including the present building?

Had a "busy day" with sfcchaz and some others (at times) in SEPA. This was out first stop on the way to Raiders of the Lost Cache (GC2HN2H). Found parking with no problem on a Saturday morning and walked over to gather our information.

I've wanted to get to this triple-listed cache for some time.

Thanks for bringing us here!

Will log as "found" on GPSgames and a note here and Groundspeak. I only log a crosslisted cache on 1 site, so I can keep a better count of my total number of caches.

#2 0f 20 for the day. I spent the day caching with DudleyGrunt in several of the listing services. Our goal today was to seek the Raiders of the Lost Cache and Centralia, The Burning Town caches with a large group from Maryland.

This cache was on the way and we had time to seek it. Email sent. TNLN TFTC
