Fall Foliage in the Poconos

Columbus Day Weekend, October 6-8, 2012

This trip was very successful commercially and critically. Our group did a Delaware River excursion in Phillipsburg, plus both the Lehigh Valley and CNJ out of Jim Thorpe. We concluded the trip in Scranton, riding the Electric City Trolley to the ballpark, which is under construction.

Join us for a nostalgic tour co-sponsored by the New York Railroad Enthusiasts of parts of five fallen-flag railroads of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We will ride the following excursions:

Our inclusive Sunday night trip banquet is at Alaska Pete’s Steakhouse in Marshalls Creek, Pa. Alcoholic beverages are on your own. Accommodations are at the Days Inn in East Stroudsburg, Pa. Deluxe continental breakfast is included.


October 6th pick up is at 8:30 am on Eighth Avenue between West 40th and 41st Streets in front of the New York Times building. We will return at the same location on October 8 at 7:30 PM.
