Head to Central Pennsylvania this fall for a scenic train journey that includes a pristine rural landscape of trees, lakes, streams, and stunning ancient mountains. Tucked away in one of its many valleys is the East Broad Top Railroad, a 150-year-old narrow gauge line. The East Broad Top Railroad is located in Rockhill Furnace and is so notable that it’s considered by The Smithsonian to be one of the best-preserved examples of 19th-century railroads and industrial complexes in the United States. The railroad offers one-hour train rides in enclosed or open-air passenger cars, or even a real caboose, over a nine-mile round-trip from their historic station to Colgate Grove and back. A perfect destination for train enthusiasts, the railroad also offers guided tours of its intact belt-driven machine shop and roundhouse.
Both kids and kids at heart will love climbing aboard PEANUTS™ The Great Pumpkin Patch Express at the historic East Broad Top Railroad this October. The three-hour experience includes a roundtrip train ride to the Pumpkin Patch through scenic rolling hills, farms, and forests. Best of all, every kid can take home their own perfect pumpkin, enjoy a variety of fun activities, and get their photo with Snoopy & Charlie Brown. Reservations are strongly recommended.
