Engineer for a Day - 2 Hours

The Engineer for a Day package allows you to actually operate the locomotive under the supervision of a qualified Colebrookdale Engineer. Participants will learn how to maintain and operate a locomotive (note that the train will not be attached to the locomative during this run). This makes for a unique experience you won't be able to find elsewhere! It also makes a great gift for that Railroad buff in your family.

This 2 hour experience is available upon request. Reservations are required, and it is limited to those at least 18 years of age.

Gift certificates are also available; please contact for more information. Also be aware that substantial discounts are available for members of the railroad.

Please call the office at 610-367-0200, and a representative will assist you in placing your reservation.


Fares may vary based upon meal options.
