Steamtown's short train rides and excursions are available seasonally. The"Scranton Limited" short train rides depart from the park's Museum Core Complex. This train ride encompasses a 3-mile, 30-minute round trip through the rail yards, and crosses the Lackawanna River and passes the historic Radisson at Lackawanna Station hotel (former DL&W Railroad passenger station and offices), before stopping near the University of Scranton and begin its return to the roundhouse boarding area. Check our Monthly Scheduled Programs to verify operating days and times prior to your visit. (NOTE: The short train rides are sometimes cancelled when there are excursions scheduled on the same day.)
On some Sundays, the "Scranton Limited"
will transform into the "Nay Aug Limited."
This expanded ride will travel a bit further east along the former Pocono Mainline to the 755-foot Nay Aug Tunnel.
Each trip will also feature an interpretive program by a park ranger or volunteer, and a brief stop above Nay Aug Park Gorge and Waterfall NNL
which is located inside the City of Scranton's Nay Aug Park
and the adjacent Everhart Museum
. (NOTE: The short train rides are sometimes cancelled when there are excursions scheduled on the same day.)
The cost for both the "Scranton Limited"
and "Nay Aug Limited"
short train rides is $5.00 per person, all ages 6 and older, in addition to the park's daily Entrance Fee.
