Comments/Directions:
The Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad Preservation Society operates the Ma & Pa Railroad Heritage Village at Muddy Creek Forks, PA. Open Sunday afternoons in June, July, and August and selected days in September and October, the Heritage Village showcases the central role of the railroad in this rural community during the early years of the 20th century. The village of Muddy Creek Forks is listed as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, and coming into town is like stepping back a century in time. Costumed interpreters welcome visitors to the A. M. Grove Store (which also housed the railroad station and Post Office), Muddy Creek Forks Roller Mills, and grain elevator. The second floor of the store contains displays about the village and railroad. Motorcar trains carry visitors on a forty-minute trip through the Muddy Creek Valley on the original mainline of the famous Ma & Pa. Ma & Pa Locomotive No. 82 and Caboose 2007 are on display and are opened to visitors on special days. Souvenirs and snack foods are available, and visitors are welcome to picnic on the grounds. More information, directions, and a calendar of events can be found on the Society website.
