Take the reins of the "Iron Horse"! At the Throttle is back. You can power down the tracks at the throttle of the Lehigh Valley Coal #126. No previous locomotive experience is required. The program is a unique opportunity for rail fans to live their dream of running a steam engine, taking a trip back in time to the golden age of railroading.

A qualified engineer will be in the cab at all times, but participants will enjoy a full half hour operation the engine (following a safety orientation), take home a certificate and a souvenir engineer hat. At the throttle makes a great birthday or Father's Day gift. Gift certificates are avialable.
