The railroad has a number of excursions on offer, all of which are two-hour round trips that depart from Boyertown. Customers can opt for the Cabin Fever Train, which presents a fun activity on an otherwise boring day. On the Santa Claus Train, passengers can join carolers in singing tunes in decorated rail cars, deliver letters to Santa, and purchase hot chocolate and cookies. The Night Before Christmas Train has similar activities, but passengers are encouraged to wear their PJs and snuggle up for a reading of “The Night Before Christmas.” Bid farewell to 2014 on the Winter Starlight Express, on which visitors sample local cheeses (and can buy sparkling beverages) during a nighttime ride.
The Colebrookdale Railroad
Trains on the The Colebrookdale Railroad still ferry passengers and goods down the same tracks laid just after the Civil War. The surrounding lands, architecture, and industry have changed little the intervening 150 years, so rides on the line's locomotives also act as a journey through the area's history of ironworking. Given that the railroad passes through beautifully serene woodlands that are home to white-tailed deer and bald eagles, it's no wonder that the conductors call it the Secret Valley Line. The train also passes by old forges, ironworks, and even the historic Georgian-style Pottsgrove Manor, a mansion built by Pottstown founder John Potts in 1752.
