The Greater Pittston Charity Train Ride will once again take patrons back in time on the newly restored Reading and Northern RR’s 1920 era open window coach pulled by a diesel locomotive to historic Jim Thorpe. The train will depart Duryea at 9 a.m. and will return at approximately 6:45 p.m.
There will be plenty of free time to explore the many historical spots or have a leisurely lunch at one of the many fine restaurants in Jim Thorpe.
Also again this year, the Jim Thorpe Fall Festival will be in full swing.
Tickets are $65 per person and all proceeds benefit the Greater Pittston YMCA, The Pittston Memorial Library and The Care and Concern Free Health Clinic. Please make checks payable to The Greater Pittston Charity Train Ride, c/o 47 Broad Street, Pittston, Pa 18640.
