Starting July 18 and running through October 31, the Harrisburg, Lincoln & Lancaster Railroad at Stone Gables Estate will be operating Saturday train rides!

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind 1.2-mile, round-trip train excursion through the center of Stone Gables Estate on the Harrisburg, Lincoln & Lancaster Railroad, traversing the original 1838 railroad bed on which President Lincoln’s funeral train traveled on April 22, 1865. Featured is a replica of an 1868 steam locomotive, pulling replicas of an 1848 Pioneer Coach and the only replica of the 1865 presidential private car, “United States,” which was used as Lincoln’s Funeral Car. Journey past an original hand-cut and stacked original stone wall, through woodlands with 250 to 350-year-old “witness” trees, past the restored 1844 Herr’s Mill Covered Bridge, and along the cascading, boulder-lined Conoy Creek. The conductor will provide historical and current facts about sights along the way, the railroad, train, and Stone Gables Estate. At the end of each trip, guests will have an opportunity to take a narrated walk-through of the Lincoln Funeral Car.

Coming soon! We are adding another passenger coach to the train. Please stay tuned for more information!

Saturday Operating Schedule: 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12 noon, 12:30 p.m., and 1 p.m.
