We have been to Steamtown many times and have participated in several excursions. Our latest experience was the special Scranton to Tobyhanna trip which was pulled by two immaculate loaner 1948 vintage F3 diesels.
The volunteer in our car, Tom, I believe, provided a non-stop historical narrative on the outbound leg of the trip. While in Tobyhanna, we took a guided tour of a small ice house operation that pays homage to the giant ice harvesting events that used to take place in Tobyhanna preceding the invention of mechanical refrigeration.
Upon our return to Scranton, we did a tour of the museum areas and visited the stored steam engines in the roundhouse. We also witnessed each of the F3 diesels take a trip on the turntable so that they could be stored in one of the roundhouse stalls. A perfect ending to a great fall day.
