2014 TRAIN EXCURSIONS CANCELLED

The Lehigh Valley Railroad Historical Society regrets to announce that we will not be sponsoring fall foliage and Santa train excursions on the Finger Lakes Railway this year because of greatly increased insurance costs. We did not want to double our ticket prices. Thank you for your understanding.
