Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Founded in 2014, the Allentown and Auburn Railroad prides itself in it's unique collection of heritage railroad equipment. Boasting 4 1/2 miles of picturesque track, we take our passengers on more than just a train ride; we bring history to life before them.

When not running train rides for the public, our dedicated staff is hard at work restoring our unique equipment. Each piece has a story that we aim to preserve, whether it is a 100 year old passenger coach being restored to its former glory, or running the second oldest operating diesel locomotive in the country.

We are passionate dreamers, artisans, and historians, with the goal of sharing this rich aspect of American history with children and adults alike.

Welcome aboard the Allentown and Auburn Railroad!

Enjoy the Ride!


The train station opens ONE HOUR BEFORE THE FIRST SCHEDULED TRAIN RIDE OF THE DAY for ticket pick up and purchase on the days we are running train rides!
