Looking to make the most of your Railfest experience? Climb aboard for a special trip to Gouldsboro Station! In line with industrial events taking place at Steamtown and the Scranton Iron Furnaces, visitors to the Gouldsboro Station will have an opportunity to learn about the "Ring of Fire" through a live demonstration.

The station was built in 1905 when Gouldsboro was originally called Sand Cut, named by the railroad workers for the abundance of sand that was found while constructing the railroad tracks. Later, our town was renamed Gouldsboro after Jay Gould, an infamous robber baron who built a tannery in this area in 1856, later closing it in 1861 and moving into the business of monopolizing railroads of the west.

The train ride will last approximately 1 hour; departing Steamtown at 11 a.m. and arriving in Gouldsboro at 12 p.m. There will be a 2-hour layover at the Gouldsboro Station for the event. Returning train ride will last approximately 1 hour; departing Gouldsboro at 2 p.m. and arriving in Steamtown at 3 p.m.
