Group Visits and Reservations

Steamtown offers a unique opportunity to get an intimate acquaintance with the history and people of steam railroading.

Steamtown NHS is very popular with tour and school groups. All organizations and groups need to make a reservation at least 2-3 weeks prior to visiting the park. This is especially important if you are planning a visit in the Fall that will include a train ride, as the excursions are very popular and do sell out. Keep in mind that due to limited staffing, the number of groups we can accommodate on any given day is limited. For more information, please email the details of your proposed visit, including date(s), to Group Reservations.



VERY IMPORTANT! DO NOT use the Park's mailing address for directions because there is no entrance at that address!

Many tour operators and bus companies will automatically - and incorrectly - program our Park mailing address into bus, coach and van GPS systems. As a result, some groups have missed scheduled train rides or tour programs. To avoid delays or late arrivals for your passengers and guests, PLEASE use the following GPS information or visit our Directions page:

Our GPS coordinates are:
N 41.4107642 (latitude), W 75.6713545 (longitude)

On some GPS systems, using the street address 4 Lackawanna Ave and ZIP code 18503 will bring you to the Park Entrance at the intersection of Lackawanna Ave and Cliff St (some mapping software also lists as S Bridge Ave instead of Cliff St - it is the same entrance road).

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.
