Steam locomotive 126 is a 0-6-0 tank engine that was built in 1931 by the Vulcan Iron Works for the Lehigh Valley Coal Company. Restored in 2011 to operating condition by its owners at the Gramling Locomotive Works in Indiana, the 126 has gained an impressive notoriety in offering train rides and excursions throughout the country as well as starring in the Amazon series Have Steam Engine Will Travel. We are excited to have her join us again this year for our Summer of Steam.

Based on availability, a third option for purchasing tickets will be provided at our will-call next to the train during the event.
