Superintendent's Compendium

The United States Code of Federal Regulations delegates the park superintendent the authority to provide services and access to the public. View the Superintendent's Compendium which outlines accepted and prohibited activities within the boundaries of Steamtown National Historic Site.

 

Firearms in National Parks

The law governing possession of firearms inside a national park became effective on February 22, 2010. Visitors may possess firearms within a national park unit provided they comply with federal, state, and local laws.


The role of the responsible gun owner is to know and obey the federal, state, and local laws appropriate to the park they are visiting. For more information about Pennsylvania gun laws, please visit their website.

Please remember that federal law prohibits firearms in certain park facilities and buildings. These places are marked with signs at public entrances.

 

Refund Policy

In the event you miss your Short Train Ride (yard shuttle), we can put you on the next shuttle as long as the train is not sold out or was the last train of the day.

If you miss the train for a special event or excursion program, tickets cannot be refunded or transferred.

If you miss the return ride from a special event or excursion program, you are responsible for getting transportation back to your point of origin.
