General and Mrs. Lee on the Hanover Junction Flyer with No. 17

General and Mrs. Robert E. Lee are brought to life by living historians Frank and Bonnie Orlando. Learn about these two historic Americans as friends, husband and wife, father and mother, military tactician and superintendent of West Point, the Lady of Arlington and the great granddaughter of Martha Washington. At the same time, learn why Robert E. Lee rejected the command of the US Army when it was offered to him in April of 1861.

Outside your window is the beautiful York County and the Heritage Rail Trail, while you enjoy this excursion to Hanover Junction. We will take you back in time to the 1860s, when President Lincoln rode these tracks on his way to Gettysburg to deliver his now-famous Gettysburg Address. Enjoy the scenic countryside and visit the Hanover Junction Museum on the stopover. All aboard!

The coaches are pushed and pulled by our steam locomotive. This excursion is two and a half hours.

Tickets will be available to be picked up at the ticket booth in the back of the gift shop on the day of the trip. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure.

The 2018 Season of Imagination is brought to you in part by Bronze Sponsor, Aero Energy.
