New for 2014!
On some Sundays this summer, the "Scranton Limited" train rides will transform into the "Nay Aug Limited". This 45-minute round-trip journey travels a bit further east along the former Pocono Mainline to the 755-foot Nay Aug Tunnel. Each trip will feature a brief stop above Nay Aug Gorge, with its rock cliffs and leaty glens. The City of Scranton's Nay Aug Park, along with the adjacent Everhart Museum, are located at the end of the 1900 block of Mulberry Avenue.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The short train rides are sometimes cancelled when there are excursions scheduled on the same day.

The "Scranton Limited" and "Nay Aug Limited" short train rides give visitors a chance to experience riding in an historic commuter car (the cars were built between 1915 and 1935) behind an historic diesel locomotive. The "Scranton Limited" rides, approximately 30-minute round-trip, and the "Nay Aug Limited," approximately 45-minute round-trip, give visitors a good overall view of the railroad yards.


In addition to the daily Park Entrance Fee, a fare of $5.00 per person, all ages 6 and older, is required for the "Scranton Limited" and the "Nay Aug Limited" train rides.

October (Fall Foliage) train operations are tentatively scheduled to be announced in August.
