July 17-18 – Black Diamond Train Rides
July 17 @ 10:00 am - July 18 @ 3:30 pm
We celebrate the history of the Lehigh Valley Railroad and the 80th birthday of our caboose 95100 with this special event! Help celebrate as we wrap up a multi-year restoration completed by our volunteers. The Lehigh Valley Railroad was called the “Route of the Black Diamond” because of the lucrative coal traffic it once carried. Join us and celebrate this rich railroading legacy!
During your visit, enjoy train rides that tour our museum grounds as you visit New York’s largest collection of historic trains. Enjoy a mile-and-a-half round trip train ride through our bucolic museum grounds. Tour our exhibits and take a peek behind the scenes in our Restoration Shop. Snacks available for purchase. Our museum gift shop is stocked with souvenirs for train buffs of all ages. All aboard!
