Tomorrow is the 3rd weekend of the month, which means FREE rides! From 10am-3:30pm come and take a 12 minute ride around Fairview Nature Park on one of our 7 1/2in gauge miniature trains. While you're by the station go check out the @ocearthstewards tent for some fun environmental themed activities. Remember, your donations are what keep the trains running. We hope to see you there, All Aboard!
A MARC test train zips past the S curve at Curtis Park, PA on one of two roundtrip test runs between Washington DC and Philadelphia. The three-car multilevel set is led by two BRAND NEW Siemens SC-44 Charger diesel locomotives (too bad this was the best and only angle I could get as I was at the front window of a SEPTA train), which are being tested in high speed Northeast Corridor non-passenger service. Once they enter passenger service, MARC will have a 100% diesel fleet and all electrics may get retired.
