LEHIGH GORGE SCENIC RAILWAY INC. -website-
The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway primarily uses passenger coaches that were built as early as 1917. Most trains are diesel operated, but the railroad does use steam locomotive No. 425 on occasion. Regular season trains operate from the historic downtown Jim Thorpe Station May through December into the beautiful Lehigh Gorge State Park. Bike trains are a new option for people who want to view the entire Lehigh Gorge. Trains leave downtown Jim Thorpe to White Haven, PA to disembark bicyclists on the 25 mile river trail for the return to Jim Thorpe. People can take their own bike, rent one through Pocono Biking, or take the Bike Train round-trip back to Jim Thorpe. The railroad also operates the very popular Fall Foliage Specials from Port Clinton, PA to Jim Thorpe and return in October. Hometown High Bridge trains operate in October from Jim Thorpe Station to the 168 foot tall Hometown High Bridge trestle. The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway also offers other special train excursions throughout the year. Please visit our website for more info. for official schedules or call 610-562-2102 for more details.
