We'd read about Station Inn years ago and finally made the trip - and we will go back. We probably don't qualify as "railfanners" - don't have our own scanner, don't want to drive from tunnel to tunnel to catch the next great photo, don't own an engineer cap - but we like trains and like watching them, and this is the place to be. Our comfortable, warm room faced the nearby tracks, so, even though it was waaaay too cold to sit on the porch during our recent weekend stay, we could cozy up in our chairs or on the comfy bed and watch and listen to our heart's content. The room comes with plenty of towels, a dandy Keurig beverage machine, a sink, good lights for reading at night. Tom, the warm and welcoming inn keeper, let us borrow a scanner, so we could hear the chatter of trainmen up and down the line. Over two fresh, generous and delicious breakfasts, we had long and lively talks with Tom and other guests, and not just about trains. We took some drives to nearby sites - the always amazing Horseshoe Curve, where we watched three long freight trains make the curve simultaneously, and the Gallitzen Tunnel, and the interesting and well-done exhibits and film at Allegheny Portage Railroad historic site. But mostly we enjoyed the Inn. We read. We napped. We played Scrabble. We took walks in the snow. We had a couple of decent meals in town, thanks to Tom's recommendations. We read and napped some more. And always with the beautiful music of trains in the background, one every ten minutes or so, and all in their own ways fascinating and fun. Can't wait to go back!
