Fall Foliage Excursion to East Stroudsburg

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Fifty-two miles away from Scranton is the next large town on the Route of Phoebe Snow... East Stroudsburg. Our stopping point, at the union station, now the Dansbury Depot, served the Delaware Lackawanna & Western, plus some trains of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the shortline Delaware Valley Railroad. Our friends at the Eastburg Community Alliance now take care of this historic structure. Also the East Stroudsburg Tower Preservation Society will have the signal tower open with a member of the group explaining how it all worked to keep trains on the move.
During the two hour long layover, you can get something to eat in one of the many restaurants near the station. East Stroudsburg University is nearby to explore part of the campus.

Ticket sales begin September 23 for this excursion Prices are:
$54.00 for adults
$49.00 for seniors, aged 62 and up
$32.00 for children aged 6-15
No charge for children aged 5 and under.
You may purchase your tickets over the phone with a credit card or in person at our ticket and information booth with cash, check, money order or credit. The booth is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 9:00 to 4:00.
This train is not handicap accessible, due to the conditions in Eas Stroudsburg. Keep your family members in mind, as boarding and de-training can be difficult, and the weather is not always predictable. No one can stay on the train during the layover in East Strousburg, due to the train needing to leave town and prepare for the return to Scranton.
