The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway will resume operations in Jim Thorpe this weekend, February 15, 2020. This will be a wonderful accompaniment to Jim Thorpe’s WinterFest.

The LGSR has been offering excursion train rides for more than 15 years, introducing many visitors to Jim Thorpe and its natural surroundings. The quaint shops, eateries and downtown benefit from the thousands of visitors the train attracts year after year.   

“The LGSR is a wonderful attraction that brings guests from all over the country to enjoy a scenic train ride through the beautiful Pocono Mountains,” said Chris Barrett, President & CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “Our visitors love the experience of riding this train throughout the year as it offers a unique way to enjoy one of our great small towns.” He added, “we are grateful to LGSR, as well as all of the parties involved, in moving the future of the railroad forward as it is a significant economic generator for our region…. one which we support wholeheartedly.”

Jim Thorpe, the man, was known for his athletic prowess and physical abilities. His namesake, this borough, is and should always be known for its ability to provide a unique experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The LGSR is an integral part of that quality experience.
