Overview

Train Ride "through the valley that changed the world." You'll travel back in time... just by arriving at our home station, an 1892-vintage freight station in Titusville, PA. Our three hour trip will take you to where oil history began as you hear about the people and places that made up Pennsylvania Oil Country. Your family can share the fun of train travel and relive history. Many special events throughout the the year, including Peter Cottontail Express, Santa Train, Murder Mystery Dinners, etc.

We enjoyed the train ride with a very knowledgeable guide, we traveled in their first class carriage which I would recommend as it is air conditioned. The view from the train is limited as the trees and vegetation have obscured the view. You have to...More

We're suckers for trains anyway, and this is great fun and much more reasonably priced than most. Attractive depot with lots of parking, souvenirs and crafts on sale, and food including really good ice cream. Nice way to spend an afternoon if looking for something...More

Thank you for your comments. History is a big part of our region - the Oil Heritage Region. Our ride does go beyond Drake Well, however, for a complete 3-hour round trip and we believe our prices are in line with comparable excursions.

Took a trip back in time, the city that changed the world. The first oil well, Drake Well, put Titusville on the map. Train ride was fun for all!

No, it does not, unless it is to pick up bicyclists. It does not let passengers off to see the Drake Well Museum, though.
