Reading Express on the Seitzland Limited with Marc Charisse, The Professor of Prestigiditation

Aug 9, 2017

Ride Time(s):

August 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


This ride is now sold out but the 11:30am is still available.

All aboard at New Freedom, PA for story time on a train.  Enjoy this 45 minute round trip to Seitzland, PA as the children will be treated to stories and magic.

This will be a diesel ride.

In nearly 50 years of performing, Marc has learned magic is a timeless art, touching something deep inside us — an urge to break the bonds of everyday life. Magic isn’t so much about fooling people as it is about getting them in touch with the mystery and wonder just beyond our grasp. Marc’s show is about sharing his own enthusiasm for the creations of seeming impossibilities. Marc wants the audience to believe, as he does, that the magic is somehow real.

During the magic show, enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful countryside of York County to Glen Rock, PA, on a historic railway that dates back to the late 1820s. Ride along with a 1957 PA GP 9 (converted to GP 10 in 1979) at the only place in the world where an original Pennsylvania railroad locomotive runs on a genuine Pennsylvania rail line.

This will be a diesel 

Refreshments and light fare served before and after the presentation.

This event is for all ages, but for those who are 50 and over and residents of York and Adams County please contact Shawn at  slupinacci@steamintohistory.com for seating.

This presentation is provided by the York County Community Foundation’s Hahn Home Fund for Embracing Aging.
