I visited with a friend from Philadelphia to Steamtown that really enjoys trains. He was very skeptical on whether he would enjoy this site after the long drive. They have been back several times with their friends, because they enjoyed it so much. The site houses several steam locomotives and offers such rides as a fall foliage tour through the Pocono mountains on a steam train. The prices for the rides can be a little steep, but even so, friends from NY have come to take it and have all enjoyed it. It is a very educational experience, and could be used to teach anyone about the history of the steam train.
