September 17, 2008

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. -- ABC's Good Morning America will be making a train stop Thursday in Jefferson County, W.Va.

The long-running national morning show will broadcast live from Harpers Ferry National Historical Park starting at 7 a.m.

The national news show's broadcast is part of the "50 States in 50 Days" whistle-stop train tour that leads up to the Nov. 4 presidential election.

Marsha Wassel, the park's public information officer, said the public is invited to attend and watch the broadcast, but she is asking visitors not to bring signs to help maintain the park's historical character.

The streets of the park will be closed to traffic, and all visitors and the public are asked to meet at the park's Visitors Center, where shuttle buses will take them to the area near Arsenal Square where the show will be broadcast.

The train will be pulling out of Harpers Ferry shortly after 9 a.m., according to the Web site.
