This ride calls for all Civil War steam engine enthusiasts, children who love a Living History, and a train ride filled with fun. Photographers will also enjoy the action. So come on out to New Freedom, sit back and take a train ride back to 1863.
The fun does not end there, following the train ride, take a ride to Railroad Park and bring your family and friends to the Living History camp.
