River. The line used to be electric powered & the  uprights are still present.

national museum in Columbia, PA.  The museum is only 22  miles from the 
convention headquarters,
The collection in the Watch and Clock museum consists of  over 12,000 
items, and "...the museum is recognized as the largest and most  comprehensive
