Steamtown Information

Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton teaches the history of steam railroad transportation, and remembers the people who built the industrial railroad.

Steam locomotives excite the senses and Steamtown keeps their stories alive! Feel the heat from the firebox. Hear the bell and whistle. Smell the hot steam and oil. Feel the ground vibrate under your feet. See one-ton drive rods push the wheels around. Hear the chuff-chuff-chuff of the smokestack. Today, you can relive the era of steam as the engines come back to life. The cinders, grease, oil, steam, people and stories of railroading have returned.
