Living historian, James Hayney will have you believing you are seeing the real Abraham Lincoln.  Relive the emotion and passion of the 1860’s when we recreate Lincoln’s November 1863 ride on the Northern Central.  President Lincoln traveled these rails on his way to Gettysburg to present the Gettysburg Address and two years later his funeral car rode the same line.  Learn more about these trips as you ride with us.  Also, at Hanover Junction you will hear the Gettysburg Address and learn about the history of the speech.

The coaches are pushed and pulled by our steam locomotive.
