AAA Editor Notes
Steamtown National Historic Site is off I-81 exit 185 at jct. Cliff and Lackawanna aves. The National Historic Site is on the railroad yard of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad and covers more than 40 acres. It features one of the country's largest collections of period locomotives, freight and passenger cars and railway maintenance vehicles. A visitor center, turntable and roundhouse also can be seen.

History and technology museums detail many aspects of railroading, including advances in railroad development and the types of jobs that the industry required. “Steel and Steam,” an 18-minute film chronicling the evolution of railroads in the early 1900s, is regularly shown in a 250-seat theater. Half-hour steam and diesel train excursions offer views of the grounds and traverse a portion of the former main line. Park rangers and volunteers lead several themed walking tours as well.

Ages 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 2 hours, 30 minutes minimum.
