Comments/Directions:
The rail ride is associated with the adjoining mine tour. A gift shop with mine and rail information is next to the mine, while an Anthracite coal mining museum is located a few blocks away. The rail ride is about a quarter mile up, and a quarter mile back. It features an old strip mine, an old country bank mine, and a scenic overlook of Ashland and the valley below. This line and the engines were originally used to haul coal from the mine to the tipple at the end of the line.
