See the beautiful Pennsylvania Mountains in comfort behind a rare vintage locomotive!
The L&WV Chapter of the NRHS invites you to join us for a ride along the historic former Erie Railroad Honesdale Branch from Honesdale to Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania. Power for the 50-mile round trip through beautiful scenery through the Lackawaxen River Gorge will be the Stourbridge Line’s rare EMD BL-2 locomotive #54.
We expect to have two photo runbys on the trip (conditions permitting). Please wear appropriate footwear. Passengers will be able to disembark the train at Lackawaxen.
All proceeds from this excursion will benefit the restoration of Boston & Maine 3713.
The train will include coach, caboose, lounge and President’s car classes. The President’s car is Baltimore & Ohio #97 and was used in the service of three Presidents: Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt. We are also auctioning off two tickets to ride with the engineer in the cab of the locomotive!
