Historic diesel locomotives whisk you through the trees and along the lakes to this 1908 train station at the top of the Poconos. When we arrive at the depot, you can get some light refreshments, view the various model train layouts, and watch the re-positioning moves to prepare for the return to Scranton. You also have the chance to take a moderate walk to the local Mill Pond No. 1, and a re-created ice house at the water's edge. Tools used in the 19th Century to cut or "harvest" ice from the frozen lakes are on display. Ice was a cash commodity for the mountainous areas of the Northeast, as they provided enough ice blocks to keep iceboxes in big city apartments cool.
