"Since its opening, Horseshoe Curve has been a tourist attraction.
A trackside observation park for visitors was completed in 1879.
The park was renovated and a visitor center constructed in the early

And Greenwood Furnace is a stop over on the Trans PA Trail.
Head south and its 147 miles to Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Michaux.
Head north and its 146 miles to Black Moshanhon State Park. (I have not ridden this section yet myself)

Thanks for the heads up on the steam train excursion Tracy.

I've had a bad flu for the past couple of days, and was so weak and sore I didn't have the energy to even log onto the PC.

I signed up for the Fort Wayne RR newsletter and will let you know anything I find out about the excursion. They did mention that it is a round trip.

I was hoping Mark_O was going to have his Pie Riders weekend in Galeton that weekend.

Mark?

Edit: Station Inn is full that Sat & Sun according to their website.

I am open to suggestions. I'd do Galeton again or ride the choo-choo train. It doesn't look like I'll be riding any time soon with this weather. Last year I was down to the Ox Yoke in March with Dennis when I made the arrangements.
