Mark Twain BYO Picnic on the Glen Rock Express

Live and in person, Mark Twain with Henry H. Rogers, the Hell Hound Of Wall Street, and the Beautiferous Livy Clemens!

After your return to the New Freedom station, walk across Main Street to the New Freedom Green, where well-known author and humorist Mark Twain will be on hand to provide a 1–hour lecture (weather permitting).

The coaches are pushed and pulled by the vintage diesel engine.
