Steam Into History
TODAY - DECEMBER 8, WE ARE CLOSING AT 2:00PM DUE TO UNSAFE WEATHER CONDITIONS. WE WANT TO KEEP ALL CUSTOMERS, VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF SAFE. PLEASE CALL US TO TRANSFER YOUR TICKETS OR EMAIL US AT INFO@STEAMINTOHISTORY.COM. STAY SAFE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
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.
Join us Sunday at Main Street Station to hear the Glen Rock Carolers. They will sing before the 6:00 departure of the York 17 for about 10 minutes. There will be stops at Railroad, Bailey Bridge/Walker Road, Seitzland and Glen Rock. These gentlemen will be singing for about 10 minutes at each stop. All are welcome to join us on the ground for this fun event.
Your patronage is very important to us. Until the end of December we have excursions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a few exceptions. Check our calendar for dates and times. 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 excusions 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.
