Is there any camping ground near the poor side?
Found on internet
there are some spots that won't get you in trouble with the police. In downtown Altoona, just below the Amtrak station is a pedestrian bridge with a great overhead view. West of town you'll find the only grade crossing next to an abandoned brick factory. In downtown Gallitzin, a bridge and adjoining caboose park allows a view of the tunnel portals, with westbounds heading upgrade. At Cresson, a railfan overlook next to the tracks, built by the town. Further west, check out Lilly where you can catch eastbounds coming upgrade. Finally, at Cassandra there is a park with an old bridge giving a great view of the three track main stretching for miles to the west (south).
they say google earth shows a stone road along the tracks, but I hear its closed to public
