Steam Into History

The William H. Simpson #17 is a faithful replica of the Civil War steam locomotive that carried Abraham Lincoln to deliver his now famous Gettysburg Address. These same tracks carried Lincoln's funeral train two years later. You can now ride on our newly built 1860s replica steam locomotive with our newly built coaches that just arrived at the end of September 2013.

Your patronage is very important to us.  We are open. Check our calendar for dates and times under buy tickets.  Prices will be listed and a $1 charge will be added for ticketing.  To purchase tickets go to buy tickets or tickets in the menu of this website. 

Please note, all excursions will leave from New Freedom.  The notation on the calendar for Glen Rock or Hanover Junction is telling you that you will ride to Glen Rock or Hanover Junction.  The Glen Rock runs are one hour long, the Hanover Junction rides are two and a half hours long.  

Questions, we are in the office Wednesday - Sunday from 10:00 until 5:00 p.m.   Our phone number is 717-942-2370.    

ALL ABOARD!
