Frequently Asked Questions

Is the train air conditioned?

No, our equipment is not air conditioned.

Is the train heated?

All our coaches feature steam heat. Any train that is powered by our steam locomotive is heated during cold weather. Diesel power trains are not heated. Our schedule pages always show if a train is expected to be powered by steam or diesel.

Can you guarantee that a steam engine will operate on our train?

Due to the historic nature of our equipment, it may be necessary to substitue locomotives or passenger cars on short notice. The Everett Railroad reserves the right to change equipment or cancel an event at any time.

When will your steam locomotives be ready for service?

Number 11 is in service as the primary power on our tourist trains. Number 38 is undergoing restoration as time permits. We apologize that we cannot answer further questions about the operation or restoration of the locomotives at this time.

What are your operating hours?

All departures (unless otherwise noted) are from Hollidaysburg, and our depot there opens one hour before the day's earliest train.

When should I arrive at the depot?

We recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure to allow for parking and to pick up your boarding passes. We do not reserve seats; seating is first-come, first-serve.

Do you have a gift shop?

Our depot in Hollidaysburg contains a small selection of t-shirts, hats, gifts and snacks which are available for purchase on train day. We do not sell concessions on the train.

Are there restrooms on the train?

Are your facilities handicap accessible?

The equipment used by the Everett Railroad is historic in nature and, as such, is not handicap accessible. Most doorways are between 24 and 25 inches wide, and because of this, wheelchairs cannot be easily accommodated on the train.

Can we bring food or alcohol or other drink on the train?

Unless otherwise stated, patrons are welcome to bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages on the train. Alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited on all Everett Railroad trains and facilities unless explicitly stated otherwise.
