Steamtown National Historic Site occupies about 40 acres of the Scranton railroad yard of the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad, one of the earliest rail lines in northeastern Pennsylvania. The park preserves and interprets the legacy of steam-era railroading. At the heart of the park is the large collection of standard-gauge steam locomotives and freight passenger cars that New England seafood processor F.Nelson Blount assembled in the 1950s and 1960s. The Steamtown rolling stock consists of locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars, and maintenance-of-way equipment from several historic railroads. The site consists of the Visitor Center, Theater, History Museum, Roundhouse, Turntable, Technology Museum, Locomotive Shop and a Museum Store. Park rangers offer tours of the site, roundhouse, and locomotive repair shops. On certain days, yard shuttles and rail excursions are offered, including a main line train ride to one of several destinations. Check at the entrance booth for schedules. Park Entrance is Free! Fees are charged for yard shuttles, excursions, and certain other programs. For more information, visit the parks website at www.nps.gov/stea. This project is made possible through a partnership between Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area and Steamtown National Historic Site with grant funding provided by the National Heritage Area Program of the National Park Service.
