All Aboard! Reading and Northern Railroad-Passenger is offering multiple excursions departing out of our Reading, Pennsylvania location. Rail Diesel Car (ROC} excursions are beginning on Memorial Day and running Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September. All ROC trips depart from our Reading Outer Station, or for your convenience, we also offer departure from our Port Clinton Station. Relax and visit historic Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania-the “Switzerland of America”. Avoid parking fees in Jim Thorpe and let us do the driving.
We offer free parking at both Reading Outer Station and Port Clinton Station. Enjoy three and a half hours to explore Jim Thorpe after we drop you off downtown;a very short walking distance from most attractions. While you are in Jim Thorpe: take a ride on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway,explore the local shops,enjoy local dining at a variety of restaurants, tour the Asa Packer Mansion or Old Jail Museum, and/or rent a bike from Pocono Biking and check out the trails! Our tickets are reasonably priced so they sell out quickly as seating is limited. There will be NO ticket sales on the day of the trip.
There will be other excursions departing from Reading Outer Station throughout the season. Our Fall Foliage excursions begin in October and offer day trips from Reading to Jim Thorpe, with three and a half hours in Jim Thorpe before returning to Reading. Our Santa Train excursions begin after Thanksgiving and offer 80-minute round trips from Reading to Port Clinton, and back.
