SCRANTON, Pa. — Summer excursions will begin Saturday, July 22 at the Steamtown National Historic Site. The northeastern Pennsylvania rail preservation destination recently published its summer and fall excursion dates.

Excursion destinations this season include Moscow, Tobyhanna, Gouldsboro, Cresco, East Stroudsburg, and Delaware Water Gap Township. On Sept. 2 and 3, the organization will host Railfest 2017 with train rides to Moscow both days.

All of the train rides include light snacks and refreshments and some of the excursion options include additional local music and entertainment options.

The daily park entrance fee is $7 for adults and children ages 15 and under, when accompanied by an adult, enter the park at no charge.

In addition to summer and fall excursions, Steamtown will continue to offer shorter Scranton Limited  train rides that operate everyday except Sundays. With four daily departures from the museum's main area, the Scranton Limited takes passengers through the rail yards of the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad in Scranton.

Shorter train rides, such as the Scranton Limited, are typically powered with Baldwin Locomotive Works 0-6-0 No. 26, while longer excursions are powered with Delaware, Lackawanna & Western cab units.

More information on the 2017 season is available online.
