All Aboard! Take a one and a half our scenic trip on The River Train along the Delaware River to Riegelsville and return. Enjoy a ride on our historic passenger coaches behind our antique locomotive. Our train cars originally came from the Long Island Railroad dating from the 1950's and have been lovingly restored by our volunteers. Enjoy our many activities along the line:
The Mine Train: The Gem Stone Mine is open May to October. It's a $5.00 add on to your regular train ticket. In late August, come play the game where getting lost is half the fun and ride the Corn Maze train.
The Susquehanna Mining Company: Gemstone Panning is a great activity for all ages. Participants may find up to 11 ounces of gemstones in a single bag which may include amethyst, rubies, rose quartz, emeralds, crystals, and an arrowhead. All gems are of high quality and may be suitable for cutting, polishing, and mounting. With every mine train ticket, you will receive one bag of mining ore from the Ole' Susquehanna Mine.
The Mine: Come explore the Susquehanna mine. The mine is a placer mine (Placer mining (/ˈplжsər/ or /ˈpleɪsər/) is the mining of stream bed (alluvial) deposits for minerals.) Learn the history of the mine in a fun and comical demonstration of early mining techniques and hear the tragic story of the proprietors Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Smith.
The Snyder Farm: The mine is located on the site of the historic Snyder Farm, dating back hundreds of years. The farm is currently the site of important archeological digs sponsored by Temple University
The Picnic Grove: At the mine site, we have a beautiful picnic grove underneath the shade of sprawling pine trees. Feel free to bring a picnic and go back on any train you like!
The Mine is available every weekend from May through October on the 11:00am, 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm trips. In October, the Mine is available on the 3:30 train as well.
