"According to the PRRT&HS PRR Chronology, the first hump yard in the
United States was opened May 11, 1903 as part of the Altoona Yards at
Bells Mills (East Altoona). Other sources report the PRR yard at
Youngwood, PA which opened in the 1880s to serve the Connellsville coke
fields as the first U.S. hump yard."

Only as far away as Google and Wikipedia.  ;o)
