The origin of Columbia's shifter sandwich

What is a shifter, exactly? Here in the Susquehanna National Heritage Area, it's a railroad locomotive and a sandwich! But, it's not just any sandwich, it's a sandwich with local roots that is almost exclusively served along the Susquehanna River in the river towns of Columbia and Marietta.

Local accounts trace the origins of this sandwich back to the 1910's in Columbia.
