All aboard the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway for fun and beautiful train rides through the natural wonder of the Lehigh Gorge – a ride your family will never forget. The railroad primarily uses passenger coaches that were built as early as 1917. Most trains are diesel operated, but the railroad does use steam locomotive No. 425 on occasion.
Regular season trains operate from the historic downtown Jim Thorpe Station May through December into the beautiful Lehigh Gorge State Park. The 70 minute, 16-mile round-trip, follows the majestic Lehigh River over bridges through Glen Onoko into the Lehigh Gorge State Park.
