ALL ABOARD! It's 1863 and the NCRR train is headed for Washington, DC. Rumor is that there's gold on board. This could mean a TRAIN RAID! The Northern Central Railway invites everyone to ride the William H. Simpson No. 17, our replica steam locomotive, through the rolling hills of New Freedom. This will be an exciting day filled with adventure and suspense. This excursion features the Union and Confederate armies skirmishing for control of the train . . . and the GOLD.

Caution: Riders will experience the sights and sounds of gunfire during the ride.

The coaches are pushed and pulled by our authentic replica of an 1863 steam locomotive. This excursion is 1 hour.
