Locomotive 2 & passenger cars

Visitors are treated to an 11-mile round-trip train ride along the Swatara Creek, while learning the history of the area, the Union Canal, and the railroad from a live narration. Passengers board our 1920’s vintage Delaware, Lackawanna & Western coaches at our 1891 Freight Station in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Although originally built as a freight station, it has been converted for use as a passenger station, complete with a gift shop and modern ADA restrooms. While in Middletown, you may browse the gift shop or relax on the porch and visit with folks from near and far.

After leaving Middletown, the train travels north toward Hummelstown following the towpath of the canal completed in 1827,  much of which is still visible (including canal locks) alongside the peaceful Swatara. The narration tells of other historical artifacts, folklore about Horse Thief Cave, and many more fun facts about the rail line and south-central Pennsylvania.

On the return trip, train crew are available to talk with you, answer questions, and serve you with light refreshments from the on-board snack concession. All proceeds from the snack bar go to preservation of our historic equipment through our “Spare to Repair” program. Your spare change helps maintain our century-old passenger coaches.

 


Hope to see you on the train!
