Shamokin Question

Postby GSC » Thu Sep 29, 2016 6:14 pm

I recently visited Shamokin and heard of rail excursions and motor car meets along the lines near the area. Who runs these and where can I find info? What kind of freight service serves the area? The rails seem shiny. Thanks.

Google turned up the North American Railcar Operators Association -NARCOA.
Here is the 2016 excursion schedule - note Shamokin on July 24 http://www.narcoa.org/excursions/2016trips.html
The tracks belong to the Shamokin Valley RR http://www.nshr.com/SVRR%20page.html, one of the North Shore group of central PA shortlines.
