Buses, Boats, Trains and Trolleys: Raystown Lake and East Broad Top Railroad

October 27, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 pm

Enjoy this all-around transportation experience with rides on buses, boats, trains and trolleys at Raystown Lake and East Broad Top Railroad!

During this day trip, guests will enjoy cruising around Pennsylvania’s largest lake aboard the Proud Mary Showboat. It has an enclosed lower deck with an exposed top deck, both with seating, so no matter the weather, you’ll have somewhere great to enjoy spectacular Raystown Lake views!

Next, enjoy an hour-long scenic train ride in Pennsylvania’s central region aflame with autumn colors. East Broad Top Railroad is a National Historic Landmark that dates to 1972. After the train ride, participants will also learn about the buildings, machines, tools, and people that maintained the railroad and kept it operational.

Then, the day ends as the group enjoys a nostalgic tour aboard an antique electric streetcar past historic industrial ruins and steep mountain narrows alongside the picturesque Blacklog Creek at the Rockhill Trolley Museum.

A sandwich lunch will be included.

The cost of this trip is $175/BHC member and $185/non-member.
