All Aboard to Celebrate Our Heroes! Veterans, active-duty military, and first responders (police, fire, EMT, paramedic) ride free! Join us as we celebrate the service of veterans, active-duty military, and first responders! Our journey follows the beautiful York County Heritage Rail Trail to Hanover Junction. We’ll learn about the towns and villages along the way while enjoying the colors of fall.

Free tickets for military and first responders provided through a generous grant from CSX Transportation. Veterans, active-duty military, and first responders: call us at 717-942-2370 at least 3 days in advance to reserve your ticket. Please have a valid ID.

The cars are pulled and pushed by our vintage diesel locomotive. This excursion is 2 ½ hours.

Before you join us, please reference our new protocols!
