Special Event: Christmas In Coal Country 2021

Come enjoy the Season in Rockhill Furnace during this unique family event, jointly offered by the Rockhill Trolley Museum and the East Broad Top Railroad. Train and Trolley rides* included in one fare…two vintage experiences for one great price!


Whether you worked around the clock in tough conditions to extract it from the earth or used it to cook and heat your home, life in Pennsylvania centered around coal. Historically, Christmas in Coal Country was a holiday in the most genuine sense of the word, as it was often one of the few days that mines were closed… allowing miners to pause and spend time with their families. We invite you to bundle up, gather your friends and family, and help us evoke that same sense of togetherness aboard a historic train and vintage trolley*.


Details and ticket options are available on the East Broad Top Railroad website.
