A steam locomotive excites the senses: you can 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 the one-ton drive rod push the drive wheels around, hear the chuff-chuff-chuff, experience the past.

Steamtown National Historic Site preserves an era that slipped from public consciousness virtually unnoticed. Today, you can relive that era as the fire-breathing behemoths lumber back to life. The cinders, grease, oil, steam and people of railroading have returned.
