ALL ABOARD! The NCRR Train is headed for Washington, DC and rumor is there’s gold on board. This could mean a TRAIN RAID! Steam Into History invites everyone to ride the NCRR steam engine-pulled train through the rolling hills of New Freedom. This will be an exciting weekend filled with adventure and suspense. This excursion features the Union and Confederate armies skirmishing for control of the train . . . and the GOLD. This ride calls for all Civil War steam engine enthusiasts, children who love a Living History, and a train ride filled with fun. Photographers will also enjoy the action. So come on out to New Freedom, sit back and take a train ride back to 1863.
The fun does not end there, following the train ride, take a ride to Railroad Park and bring your family and friends to the Living History camp. Visit the park and learn how soldiers camped in garrison as they protect the little town of Railroad, PA. The soldiers welcome your interest in America’s history and encourage the children to share their experiences with the train raid and how the soldiers on board found the gold!
Caution: Riders will experience the sights and sounds of gunfire during the ride.
