“A-L-L A-BOARD!” Cries out the conductor as the Stewartstown Railroad pulls out of the station on Authentic 1920’s era passenger coaches. Mighty Mo, a 1943 Gasoline-Powered locomotive roars in the distance as the engineer releases the brakes and fires up the engine. DING! DING! DING! goes the bell warning passers-by of her approach and to stay out of the way. Children and adults alike stir with excitement as the engineer blows the whistle. Sit back and relax as we take you for a ride on the historic Stewartstown Railroad.
