This summer we are running five days a week, July and August.
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.
