Ride with the engineer on June 10th!

Live the dream! Ride with the engineer!

What better gift for dad (or yourself!) than to ride the scenic Stourbridge Line in the locomotive right next to the engineer? It’s not a chance you often get, but we are making it possible through two cab ride auctions.

We are sponsoring an excursion on the Delaware, Lackawaxen & Stourbridge (the historic former Erie Railroad Honesdale Branch) from Honesdale to Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania on June 10th. Power for the 50-mile round trip through the beautiful scenery through the Lackawaxen River Gorge will be the Stourbridge Line’s rare EMD BL-2 locomotive #54.

There are two online auctions for cab rides in the BL-2. One cab ride will be eastbound, with a coach seat on the return. The other auction is for a coach seat eastbound and the cab ride on the return.  The trip benefits Project3713, the restoration of Boston & Maine #3713 at the Steamtown National Historic Site.

Cab rides are up for auction right now on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/usr/proj3713
