SCRANTON, Pa. — People will be able to visit the National Park Service’s two railroad museums for free this weekend in celebration of National Park Week. Entrance fees at both Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, Pa., and the Golden Spike National Historic Site in Utah will be waived on April 22 and 23.

Steamtown will have its Baldwin Locomotive Works 0-6-0 No. 26 fired up for the event and will be offering short train rides around the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western rail yard for $5. Locomotive No. 26 was returned to regular service in 2016.

Visitors to Steamtown, Golden Spike and other national parks will be able to get in for free on three more occasions this year: Aug. 25 to celebrate the park service's 101st birthday, Sept. 30 for National Public Lands Day, and Nov. 11 and 12 for Veterans Day Weekend.
