The Harrisburg, Lincoln & Lancaster Railroad at Stone Gables Estate will be operating SATURDAY train rides through October 30, 2021, with tours of the all-new Lincoln Funeral Train Museum!
Enjoy a nostalgic 1.2-mile round-trip narrated 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 a mid-1860s Combine Coach. Journey past an original 1835 hand-cut and stacked 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. The train will pull into a 235-foot-long, 1860s-style Engine House where guests will disembark to enjoy a tour of the all-new Lincoln Funeral Train Museum and a narrated walk-through of the only replica of the 1865 presidential private car, “United States,” which was used as Lincoln’s Funeral Car.
