Train Rides and Excursions
- Excursion season ended October 26
- Tours and short train rides
Steamtown's short train rides and excursions are available seasonally. The "Scranton Limited" short train rides returned for the 2014 season in late April. Departing from the park's Museum Core Complex, this train ride encompasses a 3-mile, 30-minute round trip through the rail yards, crosses the Lackawanna River and passes the historic Radisson at Lackawanna Station hotel, the former DL&W Railroad passenger station and offices, before stopping near the University of Scranton to 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.)
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.

When boiled, a cup of water creates about 1,600 cups of steam! When the resulting steam is contained in a vessel such as a steam locomotive boiler, it can create up to 300 pounds per square inch of pressure. Learn more about steam locomotives at Steamtown National Historic Site! More...
