Caboose Experience Short Train Ride
Steamtown offers the "Caboose Experience" train ride on selected days during the summer. This short (15- to 30-minute) train ride gives visitors a chance to ride in a steam-era caboose. Visitors are often surprised at how uncomfortable, cramped and noisy a caboose can be. Spending up to 12 hours in one during the steam era was, to say the least, trying.
