2024 Community Day

Railway Project 113 is pleased to announce our shuttle trips for the first ever Minersville Community Day on May 18th, 2024.  Powered by our steam locomotive, the trains will run to the New St. Nicholas Breaker and back.


These trips are in cooperation with Reading Anthracite and Reading & Northern Railroad.

Steam engine CNJ 113 will pull six trips from the Minersville station to the breaker and return.  This is the first time since 1982 that the 113 will return to the coal company property, and the first time in over 90 years that a passenger train will depart northbound out of Minersville!

Trips will depart on the hour starting at 10 a.m. and continuing until 3 p.m.  Ticket prices are ages 4 and up $11, 3 and under FREE with an adult.  All passengers must have a ticket to ride.  This ride will last around 40 minutes, with narration on board with information about the breaker and engine CNJ 113.


Please arrive at the station 30 minutes before your train departs.

Tickets are available to purchase online or through the mail.
